Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo were two of the centerpieces of the Chicago Cubs roster when they finally broke their curse and won their first World Series title since 1908.
The corner-infield duo was one of the best in the game at the time.
The tandem even earned the nickname “Bryzzo.”
Rizzo was traded to the New York Yankees at the trade deadline in 2021 and Bryant was shipped off to the San Francisco Giants.
While Rizzo is still in Yankee pinstripes, Bryant is now with the Colorado Rockies, and the two teams met for a three-game series over the weekend at Coors Field.
On Sunday, the Rockies posted a picture of the two former Cubs teammates enjoying a special reunion.

Bryant and Rizzo were certainly close friends during their time with the Cubs.
Bryant reached the Major Leagues in 2015 and earned National League Rookie of the Year honors.
He and Rizzo helped guide the Cubs to a 97-win season that year after losing 89 games the previous year.
Chicago reached the postseason and eliminated the rival St. Louis Cardinals in the NLDS.
The next year, the Cubs broke the curse.
The team reached the postseason five out of six years with Bryant and Rizzo in the lineup.
They earned two Wild Card berths and won three NL Central titles together.
Despite both of them being with different teams now, Rizzo and Bryant still share a special bond and have fond memories from their time together in Chicago, when they helped guide the Cubs to a World Series title.NEXT: Cubs Take Star Shortstop With Top Draft Pick
