WATCH: Anthony Rizzo and his family walking around Wrigley Field after trade
|Thursday, July 29, 2021, 8:28 PM- -|
Cubs standout first baseman Anthony Rizzo was traded to the New York Yankees for prospects Kevin Alcantara and Alexander Vizcaino on Thursday night.
After the news of his trade, Rizzo and his family, including his dog Kevin, walked around Wrigley Field for one last time, soaking in the historic ballpark and all the memories.
Best of luck to the Rizzo family as they start on their new journey with the Yankees. Hopefully, the Cubs think long and hard about how much Rizzo means to the city of Chicago and possibly bring him back on a team-friendly contract in 2022 if possible.

If you're a fan of Anthony Rizzo, aren't you happy for him? The guy gets drafted by Red Sox, wins World Series with Cubs and now gets to chase playoff spot with Yankees. Iconic franchises. Best of luck to 44 -- who can't wear that # in NY because it's retired for Reggie Jackson. https://t.co/vzIWo4GLqT— David Haugh (@DavidHaugh) July 29, 2021
