Ricketts Family Excited for 2010 Cubs Opening Day in Atlanta

Posted on 05 April 2010 by Lou

The Ricketts Family – the Cubs new owners – are jacked up for today’s Cubs opener against the Braves at Turner Field in Atlanta.  Tom Ricketts had this to say about his 1st opening day — “It’s just great to be here, I’m very excited.  To have the 1st game of the season on a beautiful day in a beautiful stadium, it’s really exciting.  We’re looking forward to doing a lot of these…I’m not nervous, I’m just excited.  I don’t have a lot to do except watch and cheer today.”

Unfortunately, it has not been a great start to the 2010 MLB schedule for the Cubs.  Starter Carlos Zambrano gave up 8 ER on 6 hits and 2 walks in just 1 1/3 innings pitched.  Not good – the Cubs continue to trail the Braves 8-5 in the 6th inning.  We’ll have a full report for you 1st thing on Tuesday morning…
