After May 3rd, #31 will never be worn on a Cub’s jersey again. It will be officially retired before the Cub’s, Marlin’s game on Sunday May 3rd. I’m thinking I will be there. I’ve only missed Ernie Bank’s number retirement ceremonies and I might as well keep the streak alive. This will also mean I need to add two more autographed balls to my collection. I think I’ll try to get both autos on one ball. We’ll have to see how that goes. It would really suck to be a Fergie superfan living in Florida, who is a Cub’s fan, who also enjoys the Marlin’s. Poor Applebaum. If you can make your way up to these parts I would be more than happy to buy an extra ticket and a couple of ice cold Old Styles.
