In October 2009, a trust that Joe and Marlene Ricketts established on behalf of their family acquired a 95-percent controlling interest in Major League Baseball's Chicago Cubs and Wrigley Field, as well as 25 percent of Comcast Sportsnet Chicago.
The Ricketts family represents the eighth ownership group in the team's 133-year history. Joe Ricketts has no direct involvement in the team's day-to-day operations; his son, Tom Ricketts, is Cubs chairman and his three other children (Pete, Laura, and Todd) serve on the board of directors.
