Andrew McCutchen's son stole the show at his dad's Phillies introductory press conference

After connecting with the Phillies on a three-year, $50 million deal, Andrew McCutchen had his introductory press conference Tuesday afternoon in the City of Brotherly Love. While the veteran outfielder and Instagram star is sure to become a fan favorite in Philly, Cutch's young son Steel stole the show during the presser.

Steel, whose name commemorates his dad's legendary run in Pittsburgh, follows in a long line of good sports children who have no reservations about taking over a press conference. Few will ever reach the stratospheric heights of Steph Curry's daughter Riley, but David Price's son Xavier was a key part of his dad's breakout 2018 postseason and Clayton Kershaw's kids once won a postseason postgame interview by sharing their thoughts on how Dodgers manager Dave Roberts took their dad out of the game before the ninth inning.
McCutchen and the Phillies have a good shot at reaching the postseason in 2019, which would only mean more press conferences that Steel can derail with his adorable table-banging, microphone-grabbing delightfulness.
