Cubs players touch on Bartman rumors, superstitions, wedding details on late night TV

The Chicago Cubs are making their World Series victory rounds onto TV talk shows.

On the East Coast, Anthony Rizzo, Dexter Fowler and Ben Zobrist were in New York on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon Monday night.

The teammates talked about the game and their superstitions during playoffs.

They also touched on rumors of Steve Bartman possibly throwing out the first pitch, and Rizzo said that would be “amazing.” Fowler then joked and said, “It would only be right, though, if Moises Alou were to catch the ball.”

Meanwhile on the West Coast, teammate Kris Bryant appeared solo on Jimmy Kimmel and discussed his upcoming wedding to fiance Jessica Delp.

“I hope Travis Wood shows up with a shirt on. Anthony Rizzo’s actually going to be in the wedding, which is cool. He’s one of my really good friends. So it’ll be fun,” Bryant told Kimmel.

He also says that they’ve received random gifts from people off their wedding registry.

Cubs fan Ryan Slagle, who became well known after a WGN-TV clip of him crying to the team’s NLCS win went viral, met Bryant and sit on stage with him for part of his Kimmel appearance.

Bryant also made an appearance on Ellen along with Cubs teammate David Ross. Ellen gifted Bryant a special Cubs-themed tuxedo to wear at his wedding, and Ross, who is nicknamed “Grandpa”, his very own walker.
