Cubs News: Dick Vitale visits with Joe Maddon

by - Senior Editor -

ESPN commentator Dick Vitale was a special guest of Cubs manager Joe Maddon on Saturday afternoon before the game against the Atlanta Braves.

"Joe Maddon - He is Awesome Baby! Cubs lucky to have him," Vitale tweeted on Saturday.

ESPN announced this week that they had extended Vitale's contract for two more basketball seasons through the 2018-2019 season.

“ESPN has been a vital part of my life,” Vitale said in a statement. “Completing the next three years of my contract will mean 40 years of hoops heaven. I have loved every moment, and it has been a thrill to be courtside and call some of the greatest games in the country, sitting next to some of the most outstanding play-by-play announcers you could ever want to work with.”
