Chicago meets Ricketts family as new Cubs owners

Now that the sale of the Chicago Cubs is a done deal, the Ricketts family wants to make itself known to the city, especially to North side baseball fans who've been waiting many years for a step in a more positive direction.

"Our shareholders are our fans, and we're going to work for them," said Tom Ricketts yesterday at an official press conference. It's reassuring for Cubs fans to hear, but do they buy it?

Only Twitter can tell:
