4/21 The tarp is on the field …
… and the forecast calls for temps in the low 40s and light precip for Tuesday’s game between the Cubs and Reds, but they will try to get it in. Last season, the Cubs posted a .714 winning percentage under the lights, going 20-8. It was the fourth-highest mark for home night games.
Tuesday’s game also will mark the debut of the Cubs’ Spanish-language broadcasts on WRTO 1200 AM. Elio Benitez and Hector Fabregas will call the games.
