It’s in Schaumburg, 25 miles to the west. Home of the Schaumburg Boomers. The Boomers owner says that the Cubs could totally become co-tenants, as long as the Boomers get scheduling priority:
“We’ll propose a fair and honest rent, no question about that, but we have one tenant that’s committed to winning a championship in 2013 so the Boomers would get first priority on dates … However, I think a Friday afternoon Cubs matinee would make for the perfect opening act before a Boomers game under the lights with a spectacular, free post-game fireworks show!”
The Mariners unveiled a statue of Hall of Fame outfielder Ken Griffey, Jr. earlier this year at Safeco Field, featuring the slugger in his famous follow-through seen after each of his 630 career home runs. Chris Daniels of KING 5 News in Seattle reported on Tuesday evening that someone had stolen the bat from the statue.
Thankfully, the Seattle Police Department announced that the bat has been recovered and a suspect has been arrested. They expect to provide more details later. Daniels reports the Mariners have confirmed the news.
My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over.
