Anthony Rizzo is an alum of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. On Wednesday, his alma mater was hit hard with a tragic shooting.
Following Wednesday’s mass shooting, which ended the lives of 17 people, the Chicago Cubs first baseman tweeted out a message of support, as well as a call for change.
Parkland and Coral Springs please stay strong! This is out of control and and our country is in desperate need for change. I hope In this darkest of times back home this brings everyone together and we can find love. You’re all in my prayers— Anthony Rizzo (@ARizzo44) February 14, 2018
Rizzo has remained active at his high school since graduating. He recently donated $150,000 to the school to help fund new lights for the stadium.
