Are you ready? Let’s jump right in!
Kris Bryant Facts
Birthday: January 4, 1992
Eye Color: Deep Blue
Body Type: Otter/Wolf
1) Dreamy blue eyes
The first thing that jumps out at you when you see Kris Bryant are his crystal blue eyes. Don’t they seem to pierce straight through you? In this way, he is similar to Chris Pine Cone … we mean Chris Pine. Fun Fact: Bryant originally hails from Las Vegas, Nevada and was born on January 4, 1992 – making him a solid Capricorn. It also makes him a millennial stud!
2) Scruffy Face
The second thing you will notice about this wolf in the making is his scruffy face. Usually he keeps it trimmed just at the jawline (see our post on celeb facial hair styles). Fun Fact: Bryant might have learned how to sport that beard during his time in trendy California where he attended the University of San Diego.
3) He is good at home runs
This guy knows how to swing a bat hard. He was invited to spring training by the Chicago Cubs in 2015 and led all of his teammates – hitting 9 home runs out of 40 times at bat. In baseball, that is a BIG deal. Fun Fact: Bryant’s nickname is Silk, which was given to him by a schoolmate, hottie Bryce Harper, when he was 9.
4) He’s SUPER tall
Kris Bryant is a very, very tall man. He stands at 6’5 inches tall (yes you read that right) and weighs in the neighborhood of 215 pounds. He is rumored to wear a size 12.5 shoe. You know what they say about dudes with big feet. And you just know by looking at him that the guy is packing major hidden assets that are just too much yummy!
5) He can play the guitar
According to what we are seeing through online news reports, Kris can play the guitar. He shared this bit of information in an interview with USA Today. Turns out he likes to play Jason Aldean and Taylor Swift tunes. Isn’t that just super cute?!!! Kris, will you play us a little something?
6) He’s a smart cookie
When Kris was in high school, he earned an impressive 4.85 GPA while at Las Vegas Bonanza High School. Now as a player, he has started to realize that baseball is a serious business and not just a game. “I think now more than ever … I’m realizing this game is a business, and all I can do is go out there and play as hard as I can and make it really hard on the guys in charge”. – EPSN.
7) He makes baseball fun to watch
The final reason we are keeping an eye on Kris Bryant is because he makes the game of baseball fun to watch. Even if you are not a fan of the storied Chicago Cubs, he’s the type of player that you want to root for all the same. He has a genuine love of the game and really looks to be having fun at it. Plus, Bryant truly does look extra cute in his red, white and blue Cubbies uniform!
Here’s a really cool video of Kris you might want to check out. Once you get past some of his famed plays, he answers several questions on camera. Be sure to look at those baby blues and feast your eyes on his perfect smile. So cute!
