Cub Tracks Thanks Dad

New, 3 comments

Like many other Cub fans, I have family to thank for my loyalty to the north siders. The first picture of me standing up shows me holding a baseball bat. My dad and I shared countless baseball memories growing up, from catch in the back yard to coaching soooooo many little league teams to doing everything he could to help his boy chase a baseball dream. I know I don't say it enough, but... thanks, Dad. For, you know, everything.
