8/13 Ice bucket challenge
Theo Epstein has received several requests to take part in the “ice bucket challenge,” and on Thursday, he’s going to give fans a chance to dump water on him and some of the players. During Thursday’s series finale between the Cubs and Brewers, fans will be asked to donate to the team’s 50-50 raffle, with proceeds going to ALS research. The Cubs will determine who gets to dump the bucket of ice water on Epstein. That will take place after the game. Among those who have challenged Epstein is Blackhawks president John McDonough.
