Former Marjory Stoneman Douglas first basemen Anthony Rizzo reached a milestone on Wednesday, hitting his 250th career home run.
Rizzo, a 2007 graduate from MSD, played 11 seasons in the big leagues before being traded to the New York Yankees at the deadline this summer. The 32-year-old hit 242 home runs with the Chicago Cubs after recording his first as a member of the San Diego Padres.
In 48 games with New York, Rizzo has hit seven home runs, including his 250th off potential Cy Young Award winner Robby Ray of the Toronto Blue Jays.
With only one game left in the regular season, Rizzo and the Yankees face a must-win game on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Rays to keep hopes of a playoff alive. First pitch is scheduled for 3:10.
