I can’t believe I haven’t posted this photo of Anthony Rizzo yet. Sure enough, I went back and checked the blog, and it’s nowhere to be found.
This photo of the Greenville Drive first baseman is one of my favorites so far this year. I don’t ask players to pose, so when I get a shot like this with a good smile and a clean background, it’s my equivalent of hitting a homer.
I just don’t have anyone to high-five with . . .
So here’s that photo, with a few more of Rizzo thrown in just for good measure.
