Cubs president Theo Epstein is seated behind home plate in section 110 for today's Cougars matinee against Peoria at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark.
Asked about Epstein's rumored arrival before the game, Cougars manager Mark Johnson said he had not heard anything. However, Johnson was quick to note the Cougars' proximity to Chicago was a great player development tool.
"That's the thing about being here, there's always people popping in and showing up at game time, which is good," Johnson said.
Stay tuned for more as we try to get in touch with Epstein.
