Pregame Chatter: Cubs v. Rockies; Cactus League Finale
Wow! It’s finally here, the last game of Cactus League play for the 2016 Cubs. From a personal perspective, this has been an incredible ride. I’ve been a life-long Cubs fan and only recently decided to start this blog, Cubs Kingdom, in February 2016.
There’s a lot to the story, but the short version is this – I mulled ideas for days before I finally decided on the domain name on February 12, 2016, I started building the website (of which I knew nothing about) shortly after setting up the domain, and I launched my first ever blog post on the day the Cubs played their first 2016 Cactus League game against the Brewers on March 3rd.
Since that first day it has been a very fun and exciting whirlwind for me and my family. The crazy part about it is that this is really still only the beginning for Cubs Kingdom. That is so cool! I can’t wait to see what this season has in store for all of us.
Here’s the lineup for today:
Jon Lester (L) vs. Rockies – David Hale (R)
1. Kyle Schwarber (L) LF
2. Kris Bryant (R) 3B
3. Anthony Rizzo (L) 1B
4. Jorge Soler (R) RF
5. Tommy La Stella (L) 2B
6. Addison Russell (R) SS
7. Matt Szczur (R) CF
8. David Ross (R) C
9. Jon Lester (L) P
