On Saturday, May 14, after defeating the Pittsburgh Pirates 8-2 and smashing a 3-run HR, Chicago Cubs star Anthony Rizzo went undercover and assisted with the proposal of life-long Cubs fans Steve Milsap and his girlfriend Leslie during the Fanatics memorabilia show in Chicago. Leslie thought the real surprise was for her 9 year old daughter, who calls Rizzo her favorite player to meet the star – that’s when Steve dropped to one knee and popped the big question, complete with a “Marry Me” Cubs jersey with Rizzo’s #44.
Here at Fanatics we pride ourselves to deliver the ultimate fan experience. At our Fanatics Authentic shows, the fans get the chance to meet their favorite athletes of the team they root for on the field. One of those fans, Steve Milsap, came to Fanatics with the idea to ask his girlfriend Leslie to marry him. We were happy to help Steve, and organize a special undercover meet-and-greet with Anthony Rizzo, star player of the Chicago Cubs.
