My mom-in-law was born and raised in Kankakee, IL (aka K3) and earned a degree from Olivet Nazarene University in nearby Bourbonnais. After Ben Zobrist signed with the Cubs he partnered with ONU to put together an advertising campaign throughout Illinois for the liberal arts university. In fact, I've seen some of the adds on the digital billboards here in P-town.
As many of us do, my mom-in-law receives an alumni magazine from time-to-time. I usually flip through the one I get from Eureka College pretty quickly and then it finds the recycling bin, but she sent me hers! Yeah, she loves me!
There was a six page spread on the inside, which was heavy on the pictures and had a nice amount of biographical information sprinkled in.
She also sent me a copy of the Chicago Tribune's 2016 Photos of the Year magazine.
Baseball serves as a nice escape from the real world, so I'm glad the Chicago Tribune chose the cover photo they did.
Thanks for the gifts, Sarah!
