Look, I don’t know what’s going on. Last week it was snowing, and this week we’re hitting the 60s. All I know is baseball is back, and for the Chicago Cubs things are looking up.
The Chicago Cubs kick off their baseball season against last year’s National League Central Division leader the St. Louis Cardinals. The Cubs, who ended in last place in the division last year, are completely refreshed with a new manager in Joe Maddon and a young group of guys who are hungry for a different narrative this year. Many sports analysts and pundits have the Cubs as a sleeper, and maybe they’ll live up to that “Back to the Future Part II” prediction.
Along with the opener will be a pre-show concert from Chicago’s own Fall Out Boy who will perform three songs before the first pitch for the fans on the field. Fans will also notice some construction on opening day as Wrigley is still going through renovations. It’s recommended that you take public transportation to the game to avoid traffic brought on by the construction. The Addison Red Line stop leaves you right next to Wrigley Field.
The Chicago Cubs face the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday, April 5 at 7:00 p.m. at Wrigley Field located at 1060 W. Addison St. For more information visit chicago.cubs.mlb.com.
