It is our final home game of the season. Kinda hard to believe. Usually, bad years for a baseball team are called “long” seasons, but I felt like this one went pretty fast. Maybe it’s just that I’m getting older and EVERYTHING is going by too quickly.
Special thanks to our home TV crew on both WGN and CSN. We are fortunate to have such a hard-working group at Wrigley that collectively wants to put on the best baseball broadcast in the league every single day.
Having Wrigley Field as our backdrop certainly doesn’t hurt 81 days a year.
Also, what a first year for my new partner. JD stepped right into some pretty big shoes and instantly became a part of the family. I love that he and his family have made Chicago their year-round home and I sensed throughout the year that Cubs fans quickly grew accustomed to his style and sense of humor. We are lucky to have him.
