Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo announced Thursday he's engaged to girlfriend Emily Vakos.

According to The Big Lead's Ryan Phillips, Vakos is a real estate broker in Chicago.

The engagement continues what has been an eventful last 12 months for the three-time All-Star. In addition to winning his first Silver Slugger and Gold Glove Awards in 2016, he helped the Cubs win their first World Series in a century.

Rizzo caught the final out in the Fall Classic as Michael Martinez grounded out to Kris Bryant to end Game 7:

After Bryant married his girlfriend, Jessica Delp, in January, it looks like the Cubs players will have to plan on attending another wedding in the near future.
