Cubs’ Willson Contreras in great company with 4th 20-home run season

Contreras signs up with unique list, makes Cubs history with HR initially appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

Willson Contreras has actually currently developed himself as one of the very best Cubs catchers of all-time.

And on Saturday, he achieved something no Cubs backstop ever has while signing up with a distinguished group of gamers in franchise history.

With a towering two-run crowning achievement in the 5th inning that offered the Cubs a lead over the Brewers, Contreras tape-recorded his fourth-career 20-homer season.

He’s the 17th gamer in Cubs history and very first catcher to ever pull the task — Hall of Famer Gabby Hartnett did it 3 times — and signs up with an outstanding group.

The complete list (h/t to Jesse Feldman of Cubs media relations):

Billy Williams (13 times)

Ernie Banks (13)

Sammy Sosa (12)

Ron Santo (11)

Anthony Rizzo (7)

Aramis Ramírez (7)

Alfonso Soriano (6)

Andre Dawson (6)

Ryne Sandberg (6)

Bill Nicholson (6)

Derrek Lee (5)

Leon Durham (5)

Hank Sauer (5)

Hack Wilson (5)

Javy Báez (4)

Kris Bryant (4)

Contreras (4)

Contreras, who went beyond the 100-career crowning achievement plateau previously this season, struck 21 homers in 2017, 24 in 2019 and 21 last season.
