CHICAGO — Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo is going to celebrate his 30th birthday on Thursday, and he was surprised with an early birthday celebration at Ann & Robert H.

In addition to the birthday festivities, Anthony and Emily met and ate a catered lunch with over 125 patients and their families and presented the kids with gift bags and gift cards.
