Ex-Sox Prospect Rizzo On The Passing Of Daniel Flores

Rizzo (Then With The Padres) With Fans At Fenway Park
When Cubs first-baseman Anthony Rizzo was a prospect in the Red Sox organization back in 2008, he battled limited state classical Hodgkin's lymphoma. He went through chemotherapy for six months, before doctors told him he was in remission. So, Rizzo's words on the passing of Sox prospect Daniel Flores are particularly noteworthy. Said Rizzo, "Hearing the news of Daniel Flores' passing is devastating. His story hits so close to home. My condolences go out to the Flores family at this incredibly difficult time. Stories like Daniel's are why we fight and will continue to fight this horrible disease."
