Baseball’s Most Popular Player Is A Chicago Cub
I knew the Cubs were having a good season but this is kind of surprising.
The first thought you might have when hearing this is, "who is it?" That was mine too, and I actually thought it might be Anthony Rizzo. I know he's real good and I believe he might be the face of the franchise.
However, according to Crain's Chicago the most popular player in Major League Baseball is Kris Bryant.
Bryant's "Q Score" is tops in baseball. Player's Q Scores are measured by 2,000 fans on their "likeability among sports fans on a national level." Bryant scored a 25 while Rizzo tied in 6th place with a 21.
Long story short, it's good to be a Cub right now.
