Dear Matt:

I am the fan that yelled out, "have you ever been up this late" when you had that extra inning game that ended at 1:30AM a month or so ago. It was the game that Maddux got his 3000th strikeout after the rain delay at Wrigley.

Anyway, I wanted to introduce myself because you are my Cubs buddy. You can check it out here: http://www.drodd.com/cubsbuddies

I think you are a great young player and I hope that you have a long future ahead of you with the Cubs. We will be supporting you from the left field bleachers.

If you have any questions about Chicago or anything, please let me know.

Your Cubs Buddy,


Andrew Ziola
