Iowa Cubs giving out Chris Robinson jerseys Sept 5

Former Illini and current Iowa Cubs fan favorite Chris Robinson is getting is due at the last game of the season.  As a promotion on September 5, the AAA I-Cubs are recognizing the popular catcher by giving away jerseys commemorating him.

From the Iowa Cubs website:

Chris Robinson has been an I-Cub and a fan favorite for the past three seasons, and Johnny’s Hall of Fame is sponsoring a Jersey Shirt Giveaway to the first 2,200 fans commemorating the catcher.

It doesn’t surprise me that Robbie has endeared himself to the I-Cubs Nation.  He does have that personality.  I’ve probably told this story before but it’s worth re-telling.  I was at a Cubs Convention a few years ago and visited the Tennessee Smokies booth.  Robinson had just finished up a season with the AA Smokies that year and I mentioned I had a casual acquaintance with Chris.  The friendly PR woman for the Smokies said with a lovely southern accent, “Oh, we love Chris!  He’s so nahce!.”
