Though the Cubs sit in the cellar of the NL Central with a 25-48 record, it would be difficult to find an uninterested person around Wrigley Field Tuesday afternoon. That’s because elite first base prospect Anthony Rizzo will make his Cubs debut tonight as they take on the Mets.

The 22-year-old fielded questions from the media before taking batting practice, where most of the eyes—and cameras—were on him.

“I’m just going to work hard every day, learn, get better, go through the ups and downs of a baseball player,” Rizzo said.

The slugger was hitting .342 with 23 homers and 62 RBI in 70 games for the Triple-A affiliate prior to his promotion.
