What better way for the Cubs to distance themselves from their curse-ridden past than to build a new ballpark on the site of an abandoned mental health facility?
I grew up in Tinley Park, even taking swimming lessons in the TPMHC's pool, and I still live close by, in Orland Hills. In fact, I drive past the deserted place every day on my way to work. I wouldn't want the Cubs there (not that there's a chance in hell of them ever killing the golden goose by leaving Wrigley Field), but it would be really cool to see some kind of sports facility built on that property. Maybe another minor league baseball park, like beautiful Silver Cross Field in Joliet. Mayor Zabrocki makes a good point about the close proximity to I-80 and the Metra station...
