Kanye West took time out of his busy schedule to share a pivotal moment with his son Saint, as they threw the first pitch at the recent Chicago Cubs vs. White Sox game at Guaranteed Rate Field.
A video posted by Chicago White Sox, shows the Atlanta-born, Chicago-raised hip-hop superstar sporting a Sox jersey, carrying his son Saint on his shoulders, heading out to the mound with a smile. Daddy West lets a pint-sized Saint give a cute toss of the ball first and gives him a congratulatory hug for his effort. West then takes the ball back and kicks off the game with the ceremonial first throw. (Watch the action unfold above). An NBC Sports Chicago video posted on Twitter also replays the moment and features West’s song “Homecoming” playing in the background (Check it out below).
Kanye West is a huge hometown supporter. He and his wife, Kim Kardashian West, named their newest daughter and Saint’s little sister after the town in which he was raised. Saint’s older sister North is their first child.
The 21-time Grammy Award winner currently has a lot on his plate. A few days prior to the game, he announced a collaboration with Chance the Rapper on an upcoming album and recently teased an upcoming album of his own called Yandhi. This weekend, he’ll appear as the musical guest in the Sept. 29 season premiere of “Saturday Night Live” with Adam Driver as host on NBC.
