On WMAQ, Hal Totten, a Chicago Daily News play-by-play reporter, does a play-by-play radio report of the 12-1 Cubs' victory over the Cardinals. It will be the first broadcast of every Cub and White Sox home game of the season, marking the first time a team's games have been on the airwaves on a regular basis.
White Sox utility player Steve Lyons plays all nine positions during an exhibition game against the Cubs at Wrigley Field. 'Psycho', however, will not join the small list of players, that includes Bert Campaneris (1965 A's) and Cesar Tovar (1968 Twins), who have accomplished the feat in a major league game.
Joining the Giants, the Cubs become the second franchise in major league history to win 10,000 games, beating the Rockies in a ten-inning contest at Coors Field, 7-6. Chicago, which has won six in a row and is off to a 15-6 start for only the fourth time in the last century, has a 10,000-9,465 all-time won-loss record during their 122 years of existence in the Windy City.
