On Monday, Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school named their baseball field after Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo.
Rizzo had previously donated $150,000 for lights for the baseball and softball fields for his alma mater.
"Proud of where I came from and honored to be a part of the new lights at MSD," Rizzo posted on social media. "Shout out to my brother Johnny who played a huge part in making this happen and everyone else who worked tirelessly to make this dream a reality. Go get 'em Eagles!"
The baseball season will start for Stoneman Douglas on Feb. 17.
In honor of Anthony Rizzo, Marjory Douglas High School has named their baseball field the “Anthony Rizzo Field”. Congratulations to Anthony & the Rizzo Family for always giving back and contributing! (Via @RizzoFoundation) #Cubs pic.twitter.com/2DEGYcTmYn— Cubs Zone ™? (@CubsZone) February 4, 2020
