Chicago Cubs Top Home Run Hitters – No. 6: Anthony Rizzo (242)
The three-time All-Star cemented himself in Cubs lore, receiving the now-famous throw across the diamond from Bryant in Game 7 of the 2016 World Series, bringing a long-awaited championship to millions of fans across the world.
But he may be just as well known and loved because of his remarkable consistency at the dish. He’s about as reliable as they come – averaging 25 home runs and 83 RBI during each of his nine full seasons in Chicago.
Unfortunately for fans, Rizzo was another of those players who saw his time in Chicago cut short by a trade as the front office retooled the roster. He was traded to the Yankees in 2021 and signed a multiyear deal with them in 2022.
