Jake Arrieta pancake raises dough for clean water

SHARE Jake Arrieta pancake raises dough for clean water

What do Chicago Cubs ace Jake Arrieta and a pancake have in common?

Other than the same face, probably not much.

Brady Phelps, a.k.a. @thepancakedad, a San Diego father of two, flips custom pancakes to provide clean water for people around the globe. 1,212 people, to be exact.

For $100, Phelps will fry up a pancake to resemble anything you wish. Phelps doesn’t say how much one dedicated Cubs fan paid for this Arrieta look-alike, but it sure seems like they got their money’s worth.

Chicago is 17-1 in Arrieta’s past 18 starts. Arrieta will go for 18-1 in tonight’s wild-card game in Pittsburgh.

First pitch is scheduled for just after 7 p.m.
