Dale Sveum and the 2012 Chicago Cubs took the field for the first time Sunday afternoon at HoHoKam Park. Several players made their first appearance in a Cubs’ uniform in the exhibition game against the A’s including Ian Stewart, Jeff Beliveau, Dae-Eun Rhee, Trever Miller, Lendy Castillo, Adrian Cardenas and Anthony Rizzo.

Some things in life never get old and should never be taken for granted. Walking into a baseball park for the first time of the year is one of those things. Hearing the pop of a catcher’s glove, a crack of a bat … those are just some of the reminders of why baseball means so much too so many.
