Chicago Cubs fans frantically held their breath in anticipation at the World Series, but there was one person who didn’t seem a bit worried: Kris Bryant! The outfielder was smiling during the entire final play!
The Chicago Cubs blew everyone away after they nabbed the championship at the World Series on Nov. 2! And although fans and even some of the players may have been getting anxious in the final minutes of the game, Cubs outfielder Kris Bryant, 24, didn’t seem to be sweating in the slightest! Actually, they player appeared to be having the time of his life as he helped his team make MLB history.
In a series of photos and replay footage from the final moments of the game, Kris is captured with a gigantic grin on his face way before he even threw the ball to first base for the final out. After Kris caught the fly ball at third base, he was seen making a clean throw to Anthony Rizzo, 27, at first base for the final out of the World Series’ seventh game! And the whole time, he never stopped smiling!
WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS!!! We're coming home Chicago!!

We’re still kind of wondering how Kris was able to maintain a smile and make the most epic play of our lifetimes, but we have to admit, he does have a lot to be happy about! During Game 7 of the World Series at the Progressive Field in Ohio, the Chicago Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians with an 8-7 win. Not only is winning the championship title a big deal, but this particular win marked the first time the Cubs had won the Series in 108 years! No wonder Kris was all smiles; at that last moment, he probably realized that he was going to make history! SO cool!
Kris wasn’t the only player who was all about showing some teeth though. Second baseman Ben Zobrist, 35, was definitely beaming from ear to ear as he accepted the MVP award during the championship ceremony. And all of the players went wild after realizing what they had accomplished! We are SO happy for Kris, Ben, and the rest of the Chicago team! We are smiling right there with you guys!
