Cubs unveil logo to celebrate playing 100 years at Wrigley Field

Welcome to Wrigley100: Part 2.

The Cubs unveiled a commemorative logo Thursday to celebrate playing at Wrigley Field for 100 years (the ballpark was originally home to the Chicago Whales or Federals for two years before the Cubs came along, hence the Wrigley100 celebration during the 2014 season).

The Cubs started playing at the corner of Clark and Addison in 1916, so next season will be their 100th year of game action at what is now known as "The Friendly Confines."

Here's a look at the logo:

The logo will show up as a patch on the Cubs' home uniforms throughout the 2016 season and fans can buy apparel and memorabilia with the logo on it as soon as this winter.

Texas Rangers hire Cubs' Shiraz Rehman to be assistant GM

The changing of the guard continues for the Cubs this offseason. 

After the team hired a new hitting coach yesterday, it was reported today that they're losing a front office member: 

Rehman, who has been with the Cubs in the same position for the last seven years, will reportedly head up the Rangers' analytics department. According to the Chicago Tribune, Rehman's role was " evaluating existing systems, and recognizing and applying solutions in an effort to create competitive advantages for the organization." 

All reports indicate that he'll be doing similar analytic-based work with the Rangers.
