Our View: Thumbs up

Thumbs up to the beginning of a new era of Kane County Cougars baseball, with the team being a Cubs affiliate. The Cougars have long been a jewel of the area’s entertainment scene, a popular option for both baseball-lovers and more casual fans looking to enjoy a summer day in a family-friendly setting. The vibe around Fifth Third Bank Ballpark in Geneva is even more exciting this season – especially for the area’s many Cubs fans – as evidenced by the plethora of red and blue gear fans wore during the team’s recently completed opening homestand. This is just the beginning of what promises to be a great partnership. Darwin Barney, the Cubs’ starting second baseman, likely would have been Kane County-bound for a rehabilitation stint this weekend if the Cougars were not on the road. Such cameos from Cubs players figure to be a semi-regular occurrence for the Cougars, another perk worth savoring for local baseball fans.
