Pleased to finally be called up from Triple-A Iowa to the big club, and in lieu of a shortage of toilet facilities at Wrigley Field, Cubs slugger-in-waiting Kris Bryant was rewarded for his patient wait to the majors with his own porta-potty.
“I’m as thrilled to have my personal throne as I am to be with the club,” Bryant told The Chicago Tribune.
Bryant’s agent, Scott Boras, renegotiated the third baseman’s contract to include a selection of magazines and newspapers that will be housed in his client’s new commode.
Providing portable toilets for players is nothing new for the Cubs, according to team president Theo Epstein.
“Starlin Castro has been in the shitter ever since he got to Chicago in 2010,” Epstein said.
