Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo’s jewelry caught the attention of fans and his team alike during Wednesday's game in Cleveland.
“The two chains, those things are heavy. I don't even know if I could hold those around my neck," Cubs manager David Ross joked postgame.
Rizzo rocked two gold chain necklaces during Wednesday's 7-2 Cubs win over the Indians. His on-field attire was fitting for his performance, as he finished the night 2-for-4 with a home run, a screaming line drive that squeaked over the right field wall.
"Yeah, Rizz — whatever works, right? This is baseball," Ross said. "We'll do anything for knocks. Good series, good jewelry for Rizz."
Cubs fans appreciated Rizzo's drip.

The question now becomes whether Rizzo should rock both chains each game going forward.
"I mean, he went deep, so he pretty much has to, I think," Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks said. "You never know what you're gonna get out of him though. He could stick with it, he could change, but we know it's going to be interesting either way."
