Alexander Rossi’s yearlong tour of post-Indianapolis 500 victory events has continued to roll on this week.

On Wednesday, in an interruption from “Alonso-mania” at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Rossi received his champion’sย ring for winning last year’s 100th Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil from Herff Jones.

And then today, Rossi, driver of the No. 98 NAPA Auto Parts/Curb Honda for Andretti-Herta Autosport in the Verizon IndyCar Series met baseball’s most recent champion’s ring recipients, the Chicago Cubs, where he threw out the first pitch for today’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Here’s a few social posts.
