It is the day Chicago Cubs fans have waited decades for. Tonight they will play game one of the World Series in Cleveland against the Indians. Team owner and Omaha native Tom Ricketts says it took some time getting the right people in place to make this winning team and they are determined to end decades of fan suffering.
“It was about buying time and telling the fans it is not going to happen overnight and telling fans that every short cut will be a dead end”, said Ricketts. “The only way we were ever going to get this team to the World Series was to do things the right way like the smart teams do.”
Ricketts says it has been a long time coming for the Cubs and for Cleveland so this should be an action packed World Series. The last time the Cubs won was in 1908. Ricketts is the brother of Governor Pete Ricketts.
