WATCH: Cubs do 'Jersey Shake' dance after Anthony Rizzo's home run


by - Senior Writer -

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. — In recognition of the New Jersey team at the Little League World Series that has popularized the "Jersey Shake" dance, the Chicago Cubs performed the dance in unison on Sunday night. The routine was carried out in the dugout at BB&T Ballpark at Historic Bowman Field during the Little League Classic.

After Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo smacked a 2-run home run that put the Cubs up 7-0 on the Pittsburgh Pirates in the top of the fifth, Rizzo's teammates gathered around the slugger in the dugout and performed the Jersey Shake. Rizzo also did the dance while going through a handshake line with little leaguers earlier in the day.
