Anthony Rizzo on the cover of ESPN The Magazine
The latest edition of ESPN The Magazine, which hits newsstands on Friday, features the Cubs All-Star first baseman and NL MVP candidate, Anthony Rizzo.
The cover made its way around the Internets on Monday after ESPN released the image. According to the Tribune, the article about Anthony Rizzo focuses on his battle with Hodgkin lymphoma and the relationship he formed with Jon Lester as he fought cancer eight years ago.
Anthony Rizzo thanked ESPN on his Twitter account for including him on the cover.
The Tribune indicated there is a feature on Theo Epstein that details how the team was built. ESPN Chicago is expected to post that article on its website Tuesday. There is also an article titled “Party Animals” according to the Tribune that “tours the Wrigley Field clubhouse’s celebration room.”
