Last year, I sat at Opening Night alone, shivering and a little terrified. We had just moved to Chicago a couple of weeks before then, and I didn’t know anyone to go to the game with. How things have changed! I have come to love Chicago over the past year, though I am completely over the cold right now. This year, I sat at Opening Night at Wrigley Field with a friend, still shivering but no longer afraid.
- Anthony Rizzo kept Starlin Castro’s walk-up song that everyone claps to. It was a big hit. (He has other songs as well.)
- I almost cried when Schwarber was introduced and he walked out with a crutch. Get better soon!
Cubs Hall of Famers Fergie Jenkins, Ryne Sandberg and Billy Williams threw the first pitches and led the 7th inning stretch.
