Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo tweeted support for the victims of Wednesday's mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida that left at least 17 dead.
In 2007, Rizzo was a sixth-round draft choice out of Marjory Stoneman Douglas by the Boston Red Sox. Rizzo also recently donated $150,000 to help the high school improve their baseball and softball fields.
The 19-year-old shooter was a former student who had been expelled. He was armed with “countless” magazines and an AR-15 rifle.
Parkland and Coral Springs please stay strong! This is out of control and and our country is in desperate need for change. I hope In this darkest of times back home this brings everyone together and we can find love. You’re all in my prayers 🙏🏻🙏🏻— Anthony Rizzo (@ARizzo44) February 14, 2018
