Cubs 1B Rizzo rejoins team on WBC break
March 10, 2013
MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo rejoined the team for a one-day break during the World Baseball Classic.
Rizzo was in camp Sunday. He'll return to Team Italy when it plays in the second round this week in Miami.
Rizzo also plans to watch a little video and collect some bonus money. Before he left for the WBC, several players pledged $500 if Italy won a game in the tournament.
The pledge was captured on video, and Rizzo wants to watch it. Rizzo says he'll donate the money to a family foundation.
Italy won its first two games in the WBC. He doesn't speak Italian, but says he has family living in the country.
