CHICAGO – Anthony Rizzo won a Rawlings Gold Glove Award for the second straight season.
Rizzo now has three and is only the third first baseman in franchise history to earn the award. He joins four-time winner Mark Grace and two-time winner Derek Lee.
Rizzo’s teammate, Yu Darvish, took to Twitter to congratulate him on the award while throwing a few shots his way.
You know how many times I had to run to cover first base for him to win the gold glove?
I’m 60 feet away from first base, but him? He’s only 10 feet away.
