Sunday Cubs Headlines: Ticket Sales, Ricketts On Pujols, Mike Quade Speaks

It's been a long time since I've done one of these, but now, with everyone on the roster in camp for the Cubs and the first spring game only a week away (hooray!), I thought it would be a good time to give a Sunday summary of what's happening around the team.

First, since we had a discussion yesterday surrounding buying of tickets for the Cubs series in Boston next may, a reminder today that the first day of sales for Cubs single game tickets is this coming Friday. The procedures this year are a little different: you can get wristbands at Wrigley Field Monday, Feb. 21 and Tuesday, Feb. 22, from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. both days. The winning number will be announced on WGN radio and on this page on the Cubs website at 8 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 23 -- two days before the main sale on Friday.

From 12 noon on Feb. 23 through 3 p.m. on Feb. 24, the Cubs are holding a premium price presale sponsored by Mastercard; after that, wristband winners can buy tickets at Wrigley at 8 a.m. Friday, Feb. 25 and everyone else can buy online and by phone on Friday at 10 a.m.
