Sun’s out. Wind blowing out again. Should probably move up the start time to noon. pic.twitter.com/jQhgM3wGbn— Paul Sullivan (@PWSullivan) September 22, 2019
On this date in 1974, Cardinals catcher Ted Simmons slugged Bill Madlock after the Cubs batter got snarky with him. A brawl ensued and, soon after play resumed, Simmons knocked out the Cubs with the game-winning hit. Revisit story and video: https://t.co/FugBsfDnU1— Mark Tomasik (@retrosimba) September 22, 2019

Also thank you to all the fans, the media, and all my friends in the Cubs organization who have shown me nothing but respect and given so many well-wishes this past week and a half. I will never forget you! -GP— Gary Pressy (@GaryPressy) September 22, 2019
