2000
The Cubs open the major league season in the Tokyo Dome in Tokyo, Japan, by defeating the Mets, 5-3, in the first big league game ever played outside of North America. Jon Lieber gets the victory and new ace Mike Hampton takes the loss. Shane Andrews hits the first home run of the new millennium. Mark Grace and Mike Piazza also homer.


1954
» After the Cubs go 5–15 in spring training, Phil Cavarretta gives Cubs owner Phil Wrigley an honest assessment of the team's chances, and is fired for his "defeatist attitude." He's the first manager to be given the gate during spring training. Stan Hack replaces him. Cavarretta is right; the Cubs will drop to 7th.


1933
» Chicago Cubs OF Kiki Cuyler, who missed the first half of 1932 with a broken left leg, breaks his other leg in another spring training accident. He will be out until June 22.
I bet KiKi Cuyler believed in some sort of curse!

Anytime we beat the Mets I'm a happy guy. Beating them in Japan makes it a little sweeter.

Phil Wrigley... There's a clown... What's the future cure to a defeatest attitude??? The College of Coaches!!! That worked out well... He might have been a better owner if he liked baseball and actually gave a damn. He did know how to turn a profit...

Kiki Cuyler. I've read a lot about him. I love the attitudes the players had during those days. A Cuyler, Wilson, Stevenson outfield must have been something to see... It had to be no fun starting the season on the DL two years in a row. Wood & Prior know all about that.
