If you are a Chicago Cubs fan, here's the best news you'll hear all day. 


Today, The Sporting News named Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant the 2015 National League Rookie of the Year. He easily beat out the entire field of rookies.

A panel of 167 National League players voted and Bryant received a whopping 127 votes, beating out San Francisco's Matt Duffy who received 22 votes, and Pittsburgh's Jung Ho Kang who received 5 votes for the award.

He'll also have bragging rights in the club house over team mate rookie Kyle Schwarber who only received two votes.

According to CBS Chicago, "Bryant is the sixth Cubs rookie to earn the Sporting News National League Rookie of the Year, joining Billy Williams (1961), Ken Hubbs (1962), Mark Grace (1988), Kerry Wood (1998) and Geovany Soto (2008)".

Kris Bryant is well on his way in the majors and no doubt will receive many Golden Gloves and awards in his long career ahead in Chi-town.

Can't wait for April and opening day to enjoy the ride once again with the Chicago Cubs.
