Baseball season isn't here yet, but no one can blame you for jumping the gun. The Chicago Cubs play their first 2010 home game on April 12 against the Milwaukee Brewers--and 45 days can go by quickly.
Friday morning, tickets for the 2010 season went on sale, and new team owner Tom Ricketts came out to Wrigley Field to greet fans waiting in the cold.
"We are as excited as they are," Ricketts told the Chicago Tribune. "We had a great off-season and we are ready to get it rolling."
Cubs president Crane Kenney shared his enthusiasm as well:
"To me, this is really Opening Day," Kenney told the Tribune. "I know pitchers and catchers reporting gets all the news. But when the fans are here on a cold day and excited about the season starting, that gets us excited."
