When your star is on the rise, national brands take notice. One of the historically most prominent when it comes to athletes, of course, is Gatorade.
And they’ve got a new face to add to the stable of star athletes:
As we’ve seen Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo take center stage for the Cubs as they rose to a championship (with many other members of the team getting plenty of focus, too), Schwarber was working hard behind the scenes. It had to be a tough year for him, especially when you consider his would-have-been coming out party in the 2015 playoffs.
But he got his chance in the World Series, did the impossible, and now he, too, is getting national attention. I love it.
I find this all especially fun in the context of the latest Bryzzo Souvenir Company video, which had Schwarber “finally” getting an employee of the month nod. Get yours, Kyle.
