The latest school shooting hit too close to home for Anthony Rizzo.

The Chicago Cubs first baseman demanded change Wednesday night in the aftermath of the deadly shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., which left 17 dead. Rizzo, a graduate of the school, used Twitter to offer condolences and issue a call for change, presumably to local and national gun laws.

The Boston Red Sox selected Rizzo out of MS Douglas in the sixth round of the 2007 Major League Baseball Draft. He has since become a three-time All-Star, World Series champion and respected representative of his South Florida community.
