Daily Herald Report

After 100 years, Wrigley Field certainly shows its age, but that doesn't mean the iconic ballpark doesn't enjoy a good party.

With cool temperatures and strong winds, the Cubs opened the 100th season of Wrigley hosting one of their former icons, Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg and his Philadelphia Phillies for a 1:20 p.m. game.

And Cubs fans also got a chance to welcome rookie manager Rick Renteria, who got his first win against at Pittsburgh on Thursday.

Check back at dailyherald.com later today for commentary by Mike Imrem, Barry Rozner, Burt Constable and Cubs beat writer Bruce Miles, and follow Bruce on Twitter throughout the game at BruceMiles2112.
