Chicago Cubs’ Jason Kipnis is enjoying his dog

The Chicago native Jason Kipnis in his first season with the Chicago Cubs, is relegated to quarantine workouts like the rest of us and is hanging out with his adorable dog.

In case you didn’t get the memo, Rizzo also has an adorable wiener dog named Kevin, who is becoming a social media celebrity. Kevin has got some face time on his owner’s social media accounts recently as well (although it was before baseball got postponed).

Chicago Cubs’ Ian Happ refuses to smile…ever

Ian Happ is still stubbornly refusing to smile. Since he’s not around teammates anymore and he’s not going to tell on himself, he’s probably sneaking a few smiles here and there that are going undetected by the rest of the world outside of a few trusted confidants.

The Cubs way-too-serious center fielder is keeping himself relaxed and mentally healthy through meditation according to his social media accounts.

Many of the Chicago Cubs players are keeping it pretty low key while they wait out the global pandemic (or they just aren’t about posting every aspect of their lives on social media). But with no baseball insight, it’s still kind of fun to check in on our favorite players and see what they have been up to.

Next. Appreciating the great Ron Santo. dark

Weathering this global pandemic as safely as possible is of utmost priority right now. It sucks that baseball can’t start until this happens. But it’s our reality now, and we just have to make the best of it.

Someday, the gates will open again at Wrigley Field. Hopefully, that sometimes is sooner rather than later for the sanity of us all.
