Anthony Rizzo shares NL Gold Glove at first base

Anthony Rizzo, and not Javy Baez, is a Gold Glove winner for the Chicago Cubs.

Rizzo is actually sharing the award at first base with Atlanta's Freddie Freeman.

Rizzo previously won a Gold Glove in 2016. This time him and Freeman become the fourth tie in the award's history.

Meanwhile, Rizzo's infield neighbor Baez did not get the honor at second base. Colorado's D.J. LeMahieu edged out Baez.

Jason Heyward was also a finalist, in right field, but did not win. Atlanta's Nick Markakis beat out the five-time Gold Glover.
