Anthony Rizzo pretends to fight former teammate after throw back to pitcher hits him in the head

A funny little sports moment.

Oh no! Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo doesn't look too happy after getting hit in the head by the throw back to the pitcher from Diamondbacks catcher Welington Castillo.

Just kidding! It was only a friendly shove. Rizzo and Castillo are actually former teammates. They spent time together in Chicago from 2012 through 2015. Look at that smile.

The ump thought he was going to have to break up a fight until he realized these two baseball pals were just goofing around and having a good time. He got a kick out of it too!

It's easy to get caught up in being serious about sports, but sometimes it's nice to remember it's all just a game! And games are supposed to be fun. Kudos to these guys for being able to share a friendly sports laugh.
