The Cubs’ Anthony Rizzo has given back to his alma mater, Stoneman Douglas High School, often over the years.
This week, the Parkland, Florida, school honored Rizzo by naming its baseball field after him.
“It’s crazy, especially with all that’s happened the last couple of years,” Rizzo told the Sun-Sentinel of South Florida. “But going to school here, growing up here, playing with a lot of really good players that have played at this school and come into this program, and having this named after us is something that I’ve never thought of. To be able to do it is just surreal.”
