Chicago Cubs outfielder Ian Happ kicked off the 2018 Major League Baseball season by belting a homerun on the very first pitch he saw from Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Urena.

Rizzo helped his team to the 8-4 win with a solo blast to right field in the second-inning.

Not only did Happ's leadoff homerun spark an early rally for the Cubs, but it also meant that Cubs reporter Michael Cerami had to take a dip into Lake Michigan.

"I've hit a lot of home runs", Rizzo said to the media following the game. Both teams are wearing patches with the initials "MSD" and 17 stars to honor the number of lives lost in the shooting.

An inning later, Anthony Rizzo earned a standing ovation from the entire stadium, the cheers mixed with tears.

"Our guys are going to get better as this year goes", manager Don Mattingly said, "but I don't see us backing away from anybody".
