Goat’s head sent to Cubs’ owner Ricketts

CHICAGO (AP) — Goats that previously appeared at Chicago’s Wrigley Field were alive and kicking. But not Wednesday, when a goat’s head was left in a box outside the home of the Cubs. The box was addressed to team chairman Tom Ricketts.

Ricketts is currently in negotiations with city officials and neighborhood business people about the $300 million renovation of Wrigley Field. Cubs spokesman Julian Green says staff at Wrigley Field discovered the package and immediately called police.

Because the umpiring crew got stuck in traffic, the start of the Chicago White Sox game at the Washington Nationals was delayed 16 minutes Wednesday night.

The Nationals, who won 5-2, said the umpires’ preparation for the game was delayed by their late arrival at the ballpark.
