The familiar sights, sounds, and smells (good and bad) were there yesterday morning at Wrigley Field for the Cubs workout prior to today’s season opener against the Nationals. One thing was out of place, “I don’t ever remember seeing ivy on the wall on opening day,” head groundskeeper Roger Baird said. That’s right, when the Cubs take the field today, April 5th, there will be green ivy on the walls. Of course it’s nowhere near as lush as it would be in the heart of the summer but it’s still a welcome sight for fans and players alike.
It’s finally here, opening day 2012. Below is the series preview for the first three game set of the season. We will run these segments at the beginning of every series this year. Would really love some feedback in regards to this segment, really want to make it worthwhile to you, the reader.
