Cubs Ownership Has a Racism Problem

This week we talk to AM670’s Julie DiCaro about Joe Ricketts, whose family owns the Chicago Cubs and Wrigley Field was found to have sent racist and Islamophobic emails to his family. What will be the fallout if any?

We also speak to author Bijan Bayne about the legacy of Frank Robinson and the sports anniversaries ahead in 2019. Damn we feel old. We also got ‘Choice Words’ about the legacy of Frank Robinson and ‘Just Stand Up’ and ‘Just Sit Down’ awards for the Maryland legislature and Justin Fairfax, and much more!
