Rizzo pretends to be mad at former teammate for dinging him in head
Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo and his former teammate, Diamondbacks catcher Wellington Castillo, had a moment on Friday.
During the bottom of the first inning of their game, Castillo’s throw back to pitcher Archie Bradley grazed Rizzo’s helmet. The toss was immediately met with a menacing sarcastic stare and a shove, which quickly turned into a giant smile and laugh.
Even home plate umpire Hunter Wendelstedt got a nice chuckle in before the next pitch.
Castillo was with the Cubs when Rizzo arrived in 2012, and was traded away to Seattle last season.
Baseball can be fun sometimes.
