Taking solace in the future has been embedded into Cubs fans everywhere. So much so that, "there's always next year" easily became a reflex. But for once -- thanks to a highly successful first-year managerial effort by Joe Maddon -- the future just might be now. Following the Cubs remarkable 2015 season, Maddon quickly became the talk of the town. So it's only fitting he headed back to his own hometown to show us how it all began.
Comcast Sportsnet Original chronicled the NL Manager of the Year's recent return to his hometown of Hazleton, PA. Going Home: Joe Maddon, presented by Binny's Beverage Depot features many great interviews for Cubs fans to enjoy, including a car tour around town with Maddon in the driver's seat; showcasing his favorite hangouts, the baseball field now gleaming with his name and an in-depth look into where his passion for baseball was born.
Going Home: Joe Maddon, presented by Binny's Beverage Depot premieres Thursday, January 14 at 9:30 p.m., immediately following Blackhawks Postgame Live.
