The Weight: Refurbished Cubs team returns to renovated Wrigley Field - Chicago Tribune

Who doesn’t love rats in the work place?

Still, some of the old standbys will be missed. Hammel joked he would miss the rats, the ones former White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen often referred to when describing Wrigley as a “dump.” Hammel confirmed Guillen’s stories are not the stuff of urban legend.

“The rats were mostly in the storage areas back behind where the lockers are,” he said. “But one thing I won’t miss, if and when we’re celebrating, is I won’t have a puddle of booze puddled up in front of my locker. There were some low spots in the old clubhouse.”
