All kinds of people are at Wrigley tonight. This is Orval Overall, a member of the 1908 Cubs pitching staff. In the World Series that year the 27-year-old righty was 2-0 with a 0.98 ERA. He (well, this guy) told me he just had to be here tonight. Teammates Johnny Evers and Joe Tinker are supposed to join him on Waveland Ave. later.

While the Cubs take batting practice, team president of baseball operations Theo Epstein tells reporters he senses some expected anxiety around Chicago. "More excitement than anxiety," he adds. The former Red Sox GM didn't bite, though, when asked how a possible Cubs win tonight could compare to Boston in 2004.
