‘Big Z’ featured on newest ‘Cubs Cornerstones’ tonight
Fiery passion. Switch-hitting homers. A memorable no-hitter. Carlos Zambrano dominated the Cubs headlines for 11 seasons from 2001-2011, taking the mound in some of the biggest moments in Cubs history as he went from young fireballer on the 2003 NLCS Cubs, to staff lynchpin of the 2007-08 back-to-back division champions, and finally seeing his Cubs career abruptly end in 2011.
Through it all, “Big Z” established himself as a fan-favorite and cornerstone member of the Cubs franchise.
Premiering tonight at 6:30 PM CT, tune in as Marquee Sports Network looks back on the up-and-down career of Carlos Zambrano on Cubs Cornerstones presented by the Road Home program at Rush. Each month, Cubs Cornerstones showcases a different Cubs legend, highlighting the on-field and off-field moments that live on in the annals of Cubs history.
On this episode, look back on some of the most memorable moments in Zambrano’s career and hear from his former teammates, coaches and opponents, including Dusty Baker, Mark DeRosa, Sean Marshall, Jim Thome and more.
Following Zambrano, the next two scheduled Cubs Cornerstones are Lou Piniella (August) and Pat Hughes (September), with future icons and legends to be announced.
Cubs Cornerstones is the newest addition to Marquee’s lineup of Cubs historical programming, including Marquee Sports Network Films featuring Ernie Banks, Harry Caray, Ferguson Jenkins, Ron Santo and Billy Williams, plus Cubs Countdowns, Cubs Classics and Icons of the Ivy.
