MLB to wear Stoneman Douglas HS caps this weekend

The school shooting that took place last Wednesday at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. was a horrifying tragedy.

Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo attended high school there and donated $150,000 in November to help improve the lights at their baseball fields.

Rizzo left Cubs camp last Thursday to fly home to be with his family and friends of the community at Parkland. He spoke at the victim's vigil that night to give his support to the community after the appalling event.

He was back with the team on Monday and spoke to the media today about the major league's decision to wear baseball caps in honor of the high school on Friday.

"I think it's awesome, I think it's cool," Rizzo said. "Obviously, it's deeper ties for me than the rest of the league, but it's really neat that Major League Baseball recognizes what happened in the country."

Hopefully, MLB will donate at least some of the funds raised on the hats to the victim's families.
