Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo say goodbye to Wrigley Field amid Cubs’ trade deadline fire sale
With the MLB trade deadline heating up, two Chicago Cubs stars, Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant, said their goodbyes to Wrigley Field. With Rizzo having already been traded to the Yankees and Bryant being sought after by many different teams, the two Cubs legends soaked it all in at Wrigley Field on Thursday.

Although Bryant is still a Cub for now, first basemen Anthony Rizzo’s is not as he was traded to the Yankees in exchange for prospects Alexander Vizcaino and Kevin Alcantara. Rizzo was seen after the game with his family taking pictures and taking one last lap around Wrigley Field.
Rizzo was traded to the Cubs in 2012 and saw his career blossom in the city of Chicago, but now he has to say goodbye. This photo shows Rizzo posing for one last photo in the ivy of the outfield wall:
