Cubs affiliation excites Cougars
Mar 22, 2013 9:30 PM - So much for Spring fever. It certainly hasn't felt like baseball weather these days. Bone-chilling temperatures have been the norm instead of the exception this month while shoveling snow has been much more commonplace than seeing local baseball or softball players swinging bats outdoors. At this point, I'd actually settle for a few 45-degree afternoons rather than the 30-degree temperatures that we've been experiencing lately across Chicagoland. But believe it or not, baseball season is just around the corner -- I think. Weather permitting, of course. Nobody is looking forward to the first pitch of the 2013 season more than Kane County Cougars general manager Curtis Haug.
