I've written often about my fave Chicago Cub Anthony Rizzo, with various tales about what a terrific person he is. And I know that can seem hyperbolic, but I really tries nots to steers ya wrong. So, a couple weeks ago I posted the story of him winning Major League Baseball's Roberto Clemente Award for humanitarian services. (You can read all about why here. The short version is his work with children's cancer programs for families.)
And because there just still might be some people reading these pages who insist on all that being reinforced, I say fine. And so I'll mention that tonight he was voted by the major league players themselves to be the Marvin Miller Man of the Year in baseball.
The award is named after the influential former head of the Baseball Players Union and is given to the player who "most inspires through his contributions on the field and in the community."
I tries nots to steers you wrong. When I say that Anthony Rizzo is a terrific guy -- I simply tries nots...well, you know.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
