Watch: Rizzo Cements GOAT Leadoff Hitter Status with Homer on First Pitch
When Anthony Rizzo referred to himself as statistically the greatest leadoff hitter of all time, he really meant it. Back in that spot tonight, Big Tony wasted no time hitting yet another leadoff home run. Now, you may point to the wind howling out at Wrigley Field tonight as having played a role here, but Rizzo and the Cubs will take the run all the same.
