Dansby Swanson, Joc Pederson work at Papa Johns amid MLB lockout

By , Audacy

With no baseball season in sight, some MLB players are turning toward other jobs until the lockout ends. That includes Atlanta Braves stars Dansby Swanson and Joc Pederson.

The two World Series champions worked a shift at a Papa Johns pizza in Marietta, Georgia on Friday, according to People.com.

It was part of Papa Johns’ first “Pre-Season Pizza Pros” initiative, which had the two Braves players making pizza and folding boxes.

The pizza chain called on players willing to participate on Tuesday of last week, targeting MLB players sidelined due to the lockout.

Pederson and Swanson immediately made their cases on Twitter.

With a week of games already canceled and potentially more to come, perhaps we’ll see more ballplayers getting their hands in the dough before the end of the lockout.
