The Iowa Cubs have seen worse opening days. It snowed last year.
But Thursday’s cold and wet forecast kept most fans away but not the diehards though.
Most of the fans weathered the cold, rain and wind, but not all are that diehard. Some are just smart. A heater, a good view, a dry seat, that's the life inside the clubhouse.
The players don’t reward the brave fans. Memphis Redbirds take it 10-2.
