EP 4: A Little Something Extra with Tom Ricketts

Hey Chicago what do you say, A Little Something Extra video podcast has a special guest today! CEO and Chairman of the Chicago Cubs, Tom Ricketts, joins Nancy, GiGi, and Franco for the 4th episode of A Little Something Extra! Tom and the Chicago Cubs have been a part of the GiGi’s Playhouse family for several years – in fact, GiGi’s Playhouse has been a recipient of Cubs Cares and GiGi impressed the fans at Wrigley Field by singing the National Anthem before a Cubs game! Tom and the crew talk about changes to the stadium atmosphere due to COVID, Tom’s focus on improving the typical “Day at the Ballpark” for Cubs fans, a few of Tom’s favorite Cubs players, and much more! GiGi petitions to be on the Cubs coaching staff by revealing her top life tips for being a good teammate. The show concludes with the crew singing a very familiar song!
