|Cubs, Pirates Go Out in Cold for Opener
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Kerry Wood got his old locker back in the Chicago Cubs' clubhouse, even though he'd been away for two years. And now he'll get to enjoy something else he remembers well, another opening day at Wrigley Field.
Some members of the Cubs and the Pittsburgh Pirates donned ski caps and pulled up their hoods during yesterday's workout at Wrigley Field on a sunny day with temperatures in the 40s.
There's a forecast for rain and maybe some snow flurries when the teams kick off their seasons today. Pirates manager Clint Hurdle's remedy for the conditions is to go play and figure it out. He said everyone would prefer it to be 75 or 80 and eventually it will be, in June.
