    “When u come for the game Kolt I’ll have BP passes waiting for you. NO better place to see the Cubs then right on the field,” Rizzo said in his tweet.

    Kolt earned the tickets from his father for his hard work on the family farm, WGN reported. The game is in June, when the Cubs will host the St. Louis Cardinals.
