Anthony Rizzo is an excitable guy. On the baseball field he’s never shy about showing his emotions, especially in celebration. Clearly, that doesn’t change when he heads home.

Rizzo’s sister-in-law is pregnant and the All-Star first baseman is stocking up. He obviously plans on spoiling the kid like only an uncle can. Although, he may have gone a little overboard.

He wasn’t kidding. Despite the baby still not being born, Rizzo has purchased enough clothes to keep the kid looking good. Although, he may want to double-check those sizes, unless he plans on spacing out the gifts by a few years.

Can’t wait to become an uncle. This kid is gonna be a stud!!! #Babyrizzo

If the young Rizzo comes out able to fit into some of those onesies, the Cubs may want to offer a minor-league contract.
