Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo surprised a little girl at the Lurie Children’s Hospital in the Oncology department.


The little girl was so excited to see Rizzo she couldn’t stop smiling. In the video, she said she was a huge Cubs fan and Rizzo was her favorite player. She even named her cat Rizzo.

Rizzo signed some autographs, took a picture and made this little girl’s day.

This wasn’t the first time Rizzo surprised a Cubs fan with gifts. He surprised a Cubs superfan who’s been a season ticket holder for 17 years with an authentic jersey.
