CHICAGO — Kris Bryant hasn’t played a single game in the postseason but already he’s a winner.
In a news release, Major League Baseball says that more Majestic jerseys bearing the Chicago Cubs star rookie’s name have been sold from the league’s online shop than any other player.
Major League Baseball says the 23-year-old Bryant is the youngest player and the first rookie to ever top the list in the five years the rankings have been released.
The Cubs and the Giants are the only teams with more than two players on the list. Cubs’ first baseman Anthony Rizzo is No. 8. The Giants have the three players on the list: Madison Bumgarner at No. 2, Buster Posey at No. 3 and Hunter Pence at No. 7.
