Joc Pederson wasn’t the only Pederson receiving a World Series ring Thursday night in Los Angeles.

His older brother, Champ, received a championship ring of his own prior to the Cubs’ series opener against the Dodgers. Champ, who has Down Syndrome, spent time with the Dodgers when Joc was with the team and formed a close bond with plenty of Dodgers.
