Kris Bryant was selected at the top of the 2013 draft, named the 2014 minor league player of the year, and launched more homers than several teams in 2015 spring training – he’s viewed as more than a future star for the Cubs, he’s seen as the symbolic savior of a franchise that is looking to rise from the dead.
Not since The Return of Michael Jordan have Chicago sports fans so anxiously anticipated the arrival of a player, and now that he’s in the show some in Cub Nation seem to expect more than productive numbers...they anticipate miracles. Is the North Side savior? The Wrigley Field messiah? The Chosen One (at third)?
All of this hype is unfair for such a young player -- but after 106 fruitless years, Cubs fans are hungry for success and excited about the club’s young nucleus. They’ve put their faith in Theo’s plan, and now their prayers are with Kris Bryant.
Show your support for the young slugger (and have fun with all of the hoopla) with this new design that depicts the young hero as divine salvation for the Friendly Confines. It’s not blasphemy, it’s baseball!
Like all Cubby Tees designs, this is not an official product of any player, league, franchise, or Lamb of God -- it's just a fun piece of unique art from our imagination; drawn by hand and rendered digitally as a lossless high-resolution vector graphic for ideal printing. It comes on 100% cotton preshrunk tees in sizes small through 5XL. (Alternate brands/cuts/colors/sizes can be custom-printed for little additional cost
