4/3 Opening Day

The Cubs play their home opener on Friday at Wrigley Field, facing the Phillies.

“Opening Day at Wrigley is always special,” second baseman Darwin Barney said. “You have Bill Murray running around the bases – that’s something you don’t see anywhere else. They probably don’t allow it anywhere else. There’s always something memorable there. You can almost see the whole season ahead of you in the ivy. You’re waiting for it to turn green. It was a little warmer last year and it was a little spotty green early. This year, I have a feeling it’ll be really dark.”

Wrigley was buried under a record snowfall this winter, however, the snow will be gone by Friday’s first pitch.

“I think we’re all looking forward to going home,” Barney said.

Murray, by the way, was to throw a ceremonial first pitch on April 5, 2012, and took advantage of the moment, and sprinted around the bases.
