Anthony Rizzo, first baseman for the Chicago Cubs, is an all-around nice guy and recently demonstrated that with the power of an apology.
Rizzo disagreed with a call home plate umpire Angel Hernandez made during the seventh inning of a National League Championship Series game last week against the Los Angeles Dodgers, and did something that may be surprising to some: He apologized.
You're awesome with us.
It's difficult for some children to apologize and oftentimes the apology isn't genuine, so seeing an adult apologize when he was wrong sends a powerful message.
It says "I am humble and empathetic to another person and my ego is in check." Recognizing when you've wronged another person shows strength and character—virtues children learn when taught from an early age.
