Meanwhile back in chilly Chicago, Cubs tickets for the 2015 MLB season went on sale to the public.  Demand was clearly strong as fans clamored to buy tickets for a team that could make a surprising run at the playoffs in 2015.  Opening Day – Sunday April 5th against the St. Louis Cardinals – where Jon Lester will make his official Cubs major league debut at Wrigley Field is already sold out.  And the Cubs-White Sox Saturday July 11th contest sold old quickly as well.  It’s a great sign that we already have sell outs at Wrigley Field again — haven’t had too many of those during the last 5 years.  so it’s clear that fans have high hopes this year.  Go Cubs Go!!!
