A to Z Challenge 2019: Z is for Zambrano, Carlos

In my house, we love baseball, big and small. For the major league kind, we follow the Chicago Cubs who finally won the World Series in 2016, after a 108-year drought of not winning it. This was the longest drought in sports history.

On a smaller scale, we discovered the Chicago Dogs last year. They are Rosemont's AA-baseball team. Rosemont is just a few minutes from here, and they have an awesome new stadium that holds about 7,000 people. Parking is easy because the garage is attached to the stadium and only costs a few dollars. I can also manage the stadium layout as it's not far to walk to get to everything.

Carlos Zambrano ties the two things together. He is a 37-year old pitcher who played for the Chicago Cubs for 11 years. He last pitched in the major league in 2012. Last year, he pitched in Mexico, but now he is ready to make his return. He will function as a relief pitcher for the Chicago Cubs this season.

Here is a local newspaper article, if you're interested. https://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/baseball/cubs/ct-spt-cubs-carlos-zambrano-comeback-attempt-20190418-story.html

Baseball can be fun, but I have not been too into it for the passed few years. Tom's team is Mets.

Congrats on finishing the A-Z challenge. It was fun but sometimes a struggle, for me.
