New Faces in an Old Place…Video from Cubs’ Second Game of the Spring

Many of Jim Hendry’s off-season acquisitions took the field at HoHoKam Park against the Brewers on Thursday. The Cubs won the game 7-4, with the big hit coming off the bat of Jake Fox, a 3-run homer in the third. Joey Gathright was 3-for-3 with a walk, a run and a stolen base in his debut.

Milton Bradley made his brief Cub debut on Thursday as well. He walked in his only at bat before lifting himself for a pinch runner. The Cubs called it mild tightness in his left quad that he felt during warm-ups. Bradley is expected back in the lineup this weekend.

Here’s more video from HoHoKam, including Milton Bradley’s first at bat

Several Cubs made their HoHoKam debut on Thursday in the 7-4 win. Aaron Miles, Chad Gaudin, Mike Stanton, Joey Gathright and Milton Bradley while Paul Bako made his first appearance at HoHoKam in a Cubs’ uniform since 2004.
