Waffle makers for rakers.
Joc Pederson got here by on Wednesday afternoon along with his first hit of the 2021 season, a house run, his first in a Cubs uniform. Fairly humdrum stuff, altogether, for the beginning of a baseball season.
However Pederson returned to the dugout to some celebratory excessive fives, butt pats and, most significantly, a waffle maker:
That is proper, a full-on waffle maker.
In case you are new to Cubs baseball, Chicago’s Ian Happ has been utilizing the waffle maker as a celebratory prop within the dugout since 2018. In baseball phrases, “waffling” a pitch means making nice contact with it.
The Cubs misplaced 4-2, however Pederson was appreciative of the reward.
“I hope we’re making numerous waffles. Hopefully we’re passing out waffles quickly to all of us,” he stated after the sport.
Baseball has enjoyable house run celebrations: We have seen the silent remedy, bubble machines and a dance tunnel. The waffle maker is right here to remain.
