Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo and former White Sox first baseman Frank Thomas have one thing in common; both hit triples for their first career hit.
Rizzo, who’s batting .332 with 11 home runs and 35 RBI this season, got his first major league hit with the San Diego Padres.
The 25-year-old was traded to the Cubs before the 2012 season, and now leads the North side in every batting category this season.
Thomas, who was drafted by the White Sox in 1989, holds 14 hitting records for the South side including home runs (448), runs (1,327) and RBI (1,465).
The Big Hurt was inducted in to the Hall of Fame in 2014, and if Rizzo continues to slug the ball like he’s doing, he might end up in Cooperstown one day as well.
