The Cubs' sale to the Ricketts family is finally complete. The family now owns 95 percent of the team and Wrigley Field and 25 percent of Comcast Sports Net. Said Tom Ricketts, "Now we will go to work building the championship tradition that all Cubs fans so richly deserve." The team will wait until Friday - an off day for the World Series - to formally introduce the new owners.
