Chicago Cubs: 

Starlin Castro says good-bye and thank you to Chicago, the Cubs, and the loyal fans in his heartfelt letter on The Players’ Tribune: 

“The Cubs fans were always so good to me, and I will never be able to thank them enough. When I got to Chicago, I was just a kid, trying to figure things out at a new job in a new city. When you’re new, you want to be approved of, and you want to belong. Those first big cheers I got at Wrigley are something that I will never forget. They helped me feel like I was doing something right — and they helped me feel like I was home.”
