Cub Tracks Says Farewell

New, comments

With the Cubs' 2015 season now complete, it's also the end of the Cub Tracks chapter for this writer.

Caylor Arnold-USA TODAY Sports

It's hard to believe that it's been over a year since I took over the helm of Cub Tracks.  I consider myself very lucky to have been able to take over a feature that was already well-established and taken care of by its creator, Erik Peterson. But with the Cubs' season at its close and with other responsibilities on the way, including a much-expanded season as the man on the basketball court in zebra stripes, it's time for me to hand over the reins as well.

If you have been looking for a chance to become a part of the writing staff at BCB, enjoy reading stories about the Cubs, and have a knack for being creative, then this is a perfect opportunity for you. Feel free to send a note to Al and he and I can give you all the information you need to get started.

As for me, I'll probably be taking a majority of the off-season off from writing. I'm working on some ideas for an off-season feature or two, but they're still very early in the works at this point.  As for next season, I'll be back again with Heroes and Goats, and I'll also be taking over the helm of On The Horizon when the Cubs start their season in April in Anaheim (against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Orange County California U.S.A.)

I'd like to publicly thank Al for all of his support that he has provided me with this feature and for his patience when the deadlines sometimes ran a bit long, which happened more and more as the season (and the postseason) went on.  I'd also like to thank Erik again for all of the help that he gave me in my initial stages, as well as for giving me a feature that really didn't need any changes to make it any better than it already was. I can only hope that I'm leaving the feature in as good shape as it was when I took it over myself.

And as always, I'd like to thank everyone who comes by every day to read this feature, because I know that there are a ton of people that do. I hope that I was able to do a good job in giving you links to the latest news and stories, and maybe even a chuckle or two along the way. It's been an honor and a pleasure.
