3/30 Colvin's pass list
Tyler Colvin will have plenty of family and friends for the Cubs’ opening series. A Georgia native, the outfielder said Tuesday he needs about 20 tickets for Opening Day. He’s got a few pals planning on showing up. One of the first people Colvin called with the news that he’d made the team was his grandfather.
“He was just really proud of me — said, ‘You deserved it, you worked hard,’ gave me the whole spiel,” Colvin said.
Colvin is expected to give the three regular outfielders a break, and get two to three starts a week. Can Lou Piniella give the outfielder enough playing time?
“Lou writes the lineup every day, Lou treats the veteran players with respect,” Cubs general manager Jim Hendry said. “Let’s hope it becomes a problem.”
Which it will be if all are playing well.
