With the Cubs having an off day after its thrilling win Sunday night, it didn’t stop Anthony Rizzo from hosting his annual The Citi Anthony Rizzo Baseball ProCamp Monday afternoon in Rosemont.
Rizzo and a selection of area prep and college baseball coaches lead a camp of over 300 kids in grades 1-8. Campers experienced various stations specializing in the fundamental skills of baseball.
Rizzo is known for his contributions to multiple organizations in helping the community, and loves hosting this event.
“I look forward to this every year," Rizzo said. "These kids are so young and have their whole lives ahead of them. Being able to see a Cubs player has to be pretty special.
“Seeing the kid’s smiles on their faces, it’s a lot of fun. You see them all interacting and it shows how good procamps are and being a part of this atmosphere, to be a part of it, it’s pretty cool.”
