CHICAGO — Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo evinced why he is a three-time Gold Glove Award winner with a spectacular catch in foul territory on Tuesday. Rizzo covered plenty of ground as he tracked down a popup hit by the Cleveland Indians' Franmil Reyes and was able to glove it.
Freyes' foul ball carried down the right field line at Wrigley Field, and Rizzo beat right fielder Jason Heyward to it before making a Willie Mays-esque catch while running with his back to the ball. The burly first baseman fell to the dirt but hung onto the baseball, completing the web gem.
