Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts: Safety is the first priority
Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts joined Len Kesper and host Cole Wright on Cubs 360 to discuss his thoughts on the return-to-play proposal.
As we hope to look ahead to a baseball season in 2020, Ricketts believes there are numerous challenges when starting the season up in 2020.
“You point out safety first, the safety of the players and the safety of the people who need to be at the ballpark to assist the players to get the season going is number one,” Ricketts added. “Figuring out how the model works financially will be another big challenge. I think the one that is potentially very challenging is making sure the protocols and the medical safeguards that we have in place at each of the places we intend to play work for the local governments.”
Ricketts looks forward to the decision of baseball to return and looks forward to games being played at Wrigley Field.
“I want to be at Wrigley. We want to be playing at our park. Even if we can’t have fans in our park, it’ll be great to be home,” Ricketts added.
