Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant may be off the dating market, but that didn’t stop one intrepid youngster from proposing marriage to him on Wednesday.
Bryant, whose Cubs are in the midst of their “American Legion” week, surprised patients at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge on Wednesday morning. Along with his wife Jessica, Bryant took photos with patients and visited with kids, and even received an endearing marriage proposal:
“He said yes!” Julie exclaimed after meeting Bryant, who tied the knot earlier this year.
To her credit, Bryant’s wife Jessica loved the proposal, and even said she got invited to Julie’s house for sloppy Joe’s:
During “American Legion” week, the Cubs are encouraged to go out in the community to do good deeds, and are told to stay away from the ballpark until the hours before game time. Outfielder Kyle Schwarber surprised firefighters with a new TV and PlayStation on Wednesday, and manager Joe Maddon will host his foundation’s annual boxing fundraiser on Thursday night in downtown.
