Chicago Cubs Championship Ring Night at Wrigley Field

Watch as Cubs players and coaches receive their 2016 World Series Championship Rings Wednesday. MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred presented the first rings to Chairman Tom Ricketts and his wife Cecelia, family patriarch Joe Ricketts, board member Laura Ricketts and her wife Brooke, Todd Ricketts and his wife Sylvie, Theo Epstein (President of Baseball Operations), Jed Hoyer (General Manager), Jason McCloud (Senior Vice President of Player Development & Scouting), Chicago Cubs Hall of Famers Fergie Jenkins, Ryne Sandberg, Billy Williams, and Joe Maddon (Manager). Rings were also made for Ron Santo and Ernie Banks, and will be on display in the Wrigley Field archives.

In October 2009, the Ricketts family acquired a 95 percent controlling interest in Major League Baseball’s Chicago Cubs and Wrigley Field, as well as 20% of Comcast Sportsnet Chicago. The Ricketts family represents the eighth ownership group in the 133-year history of the team. While Ricketts is not directly involved in the team’s operations, his son, Tom Ricketts, is Cubs chairman and his three other children (Pete, Laura and Todd) are on the board of directors.
