The Chicago Cubs and it’s faithful fans are enjoying Opening Day like they have been for the last 100 years. Yes, I’m aware that the love-able losers on the North Side haven’t won a World Series in over 100 years, but I’ll continue to back up my team through thick and thin.
Now the Ricketts family are trying to make a couple changes to one of the most historic ballparks in sports history, but they need some extra money. There was a rumor of the family threatening to move the team if anybody tried to put a hold on any of their plans that included ads.
According to CBS Chicago, the Ricketts family is looking to sell a minority share of the Chicago Cubs and could already have some serious interest from the world’s fourth richest man on the planet.
Warren Buffett, an 83 year old Chairman & CEO of Berkshire Hathaway is worth about $60 billion. The Chicago Cubs are worth at least $1.2 billion.
Buffett once owned a minority share of the Omaha Storm Chasers from 1991-2012. It sounds like bringing in a guy like Buffett would be a great move by the Ricketts family.
