Anthony Rizzo has only been a part of the Cubs organization for the last three years, but he's already pretty well versed on the franchise's history.

Bleacher Report's Scott Miller recently quizzed Rizzo on his Cubs history, including the famed double play combination of Tinkers to Evers to Chance, Ron Santo's playing career and Lee Elia's 1983 infamous rant. Rizzo got the questions wrong about Elia's rant, but you can forgive him for that, since he wasn't even born until 1989.

When asked if he had ever met Steve Bartman, Rizzo said, "I haven't. He's around somewhere. I think the whole organization wishes he could come back and kind of put that to rest. Hopefully he will."

Surprisingly, Rizzo didn't know what team Kerry Wood faced when he struck out 20 batters, which is interesting considering highlights of the game are played constantly throughout Chicago.

There's also this gem:

Miller: If someone nicknamed you Hack, what would you say?

Rizzo: Thanks, I guess.
