NEW YORK CITY — Sunday, the New York Yankees announced newly acquired first baseman Anthony Rizzo had tested positive for COVID-19. The former Cub, who caught the final out in the team's first World Series victory in 108 years, was recently traded to the New York Yankees ahead of the MLB trading deadline. Rizzo is among four players with the Yankees that have tested positive in recent days.
Rizzo, a cancer survivor, said back in June that he wanted to see more "data" about the vaccines before getting the shots.
The Field of Dreams game between the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox will take place on Thursday at 6:15pm. FOX28 will carry a special half-hour pregame show before the game at 4:30pm.
