I grew up in Texas and N.C. for the majority of my life until I move to the Tampa area in 2002. Growing up my grandparents beat into me to be Cubs a fan and I was until 2005 when I realized that not only did I love Tampa but I didn't plan on leaving for a while. So I did the only logical thing there was to do and I left the cubs for the home team. My favorite player growing up was, and still is, Ryne Sandberg. I would say my favorite Ray is anyone who will spend more the 5 seasons with the organization.
