SHARE Cubs support Blackhawks with customized jerseys

Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo tweeted a picture of Dexter Fowler, Starlin Castro and Jorge Soler in their customized Blackhawks jerseys.

The Chicago Cubs lost their second consecutive game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday but that didn’t stop them from having a good time.

The Cubs supported the Chicago Blackhawks in their Game 2 win against the Minnesota Wild by wearing customized sweaters on the plane to St. Louis, where the Cubs will play a four-game series against the Cardinals.

All the Cubs players including manager Joe Maddon were wearing the Blackhawks jerseys in their post-game press conferences.

Joe Maddon has become well known for themed road trips and we’ve highlighted a few in the past. This one happens to serve another purpose, a show of pride for the city of Chicago.

Maddon said the players all customized their own Blackhawks jersey.

We all got our own tops with our names on the backs and their numbers, Maddon said.

Here’s Cubs relief pitcher Zac Rosscup’s customized jersey:

The Cubs have supported the Blackhawks’ playoff run this season by making appearances at the United Center. Kris Bryant, Rizzo and Fowler were at the Blackhawks’ Game 1 win over the Wild on Friday.
