WATCH: Javier Baez plays quiz game against brother-in-law Jose Berrios of Twins


by - Senior Writer -

CHICAGO — In addition to both being and MLB All-Stars and Puerto Rican national-team players, Chicago Cubs shortstop Javier Baez and Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Jose Berrios are brothers-in-law, as Baez's wife, Irmarie, is the sister of Berrios' wife, Jannieliz. Even before marriage was part of their lives, Baez and Berrios were childhood friends in Puerto Rico, and MLB's Cut4 made a segment that put their kinship to the test.

In a spinoff of the classic game show The Newlywed Game, Cut4 had Baez and Berrios meet up and play "The Newlybros Game." Like The Newlywed Game, the contest was quiz-based, with the questions testing what each player knew about the other. Questions ranged from queries about favorite foods and childhood baseball idols to a prediction of the outcome of a hypothetical matchup between Baez and Berrios in the big leagues.

The two smiled and laughed throughout, with Baez's adorable son even joining in on the fun during the filming of the contest. Berrios wound up winning the easy-going competition 8-6, but the final score was an afterthought of the fun-loving get-together between the best brother-in-law duo in baseball.
