Kerry Woods, Ricketts break ground on Kerry Woods Cubs Field

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Kerry Woods and the Ricketts family broke ground on a new Kerry Wood Cubs Field Thursday.

The field is on Rockwell and Melrose near Lane Tech High School on the city's North Side.

The Cubs chairman wrote an editorial about it in the Sun-Times, saying they heard the city had a shortage of baseball fields that meet the IHSA playoff standards so they worked with groups to invest nearly $5 million to create the Kerry Wood Cubs Field.

Ricketts says he hopes the field will attract players from across the city and inspire our kids to play America's great game.
