Maybe, we should be more specific. Anthony Rizzo became the heart of the Chicago Cubs: World Series Champions.
The First Baseman began his career with the Cubs organization in Triple-A and would be called up early in the season and had 15 Home Runs. He increased that to 23 in 2013, and by this time, he was ready to take on the mantle as an upper-echelon First Baseman in the National League. Rizzo went to the All-Star Game in 2014, an accolade he would repeat in 2015 and 2016, and he would have at least 30 Home Runs every year from 2014 to 2017, and was a 100 RBI man from 2015 to 2018.
Most importantly, he would lead the Cubs to their long-awaited World Series Title in 2016, and he would bat at least .320 with 5 RBIs in both the NLCS and World Series.
Rizzo is also one of the great guys in the sport, known for his philanthropy and good nature. He would win the Roberto Clemente Award in 2017.The four-time Gold Glove winner's time with the Cubs ended when he was traded to the Yankees when Chicago went into restructuring mode. As a Cub, Rizzo belted 242 Home Runs with 1,311 Hits and a .272 Batting Average.
