Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant is off to a great start in his rookie campaign, living up to high expectations. When asked about the key to his great start, Kris Bryant did not hesitate “[m]y mom is always waiting for me in the dugout after games with Pacific Cooler Capri Sun Pouches and orange slices.” After losses, Mrs. Bryant has been seen piling Cubs players into her 2007 Chrysler Town and Country before taking them to Pizza Hut. “She’s great after a loss,” said manager Joe Maddon “She’s able to cheer them up and complement the team on looking like real ballplayers.” Mrs. Bryant is likely to remain a fixture in the Cubs’ dugout. She was recently seen buying Chewy Granola Chocolate Chip flavored granola bars at Costco and is already getting participation trophies made for the year-end pizza party in September.
