Tomorrow, April 16th is the 6th annual Race to Wrigley 5K Run. It is sponsored by the Chicago Cubs Charities and Children’s Memorial Hospital.

The race is set to start at 8:00 am at Wrigley Field. The route proceeds through the streets of Lakeview neighborhoods before returning to Wrigley Field. Runners will run through the ground level concourse, and finish under the framed Wrigley Field Marquee at Clack and Addison. How exciting!

If you haven’t registered yet, but still want to run, registration will open at 6:30 am on Saturday morning in the Purple lot of Wrigley Field. The race day fee is $40. Be sure to arrive early before the race sells out.

All proceeds from the race will benefit Children’s Memorial Hospital. This is a great way to help improve the lives of children and families across Chicago. And even if you haven’t signed up yet, it’s not too late to get sponsored. Make every step count!

For all those baseball fans out there, today feels like Christmas! The road to the regular season has finally reached a halt because today, April 1st marks the beginning of Major League Baseball for the 2011 season.

The Cubs new manager, Mike Quade, along with the team are anxious and excited about the season ahead. They performed well throughout camp, and are entering Opening Day with a clean bill of health. The Cubs open today at 1:20pm CT against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Starting on the mound today is Ryan Dempster. This is his third season with the Cubs, and is honored to be the Opening Day starter. He said he has to be mentally tough, and remain as consistent as possible. He is looking forward to the season’s start, and hopes this will be the first of many starts for him this season.

If your schedule allows, head down to Wrigley Field this afternoon to cheer on the Cubs in their home opener. But, if today doesn’t fit into your work schedule, they face the Pirates again tomorrow at 12:05 pm.

Check out the Chicago Cubs for more info about the season and to purchase your tickets! Go Cubs!
