Worth noting

• Darwin Barney, Bryan LaHair, James Russell and Jeff Samardzija helped 50 children from the Cubs Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) program have a fun time at Monday's game. The kids received round-trip transportation to the game, met the players, got free tickets, food and beverages, as part of Major League Baseball Players Trust's "Buses for Baseball" program.

The Players Trust is supported by the Cubs organization and provides a unique, up close and personal opportunity at the game. The Cubs' RBI program has operated in the Chicago area since 2000 and reaches over 600 youths ages 5-18. It is designed to increase participation and interest in baseball, especially among minorities, and to increase the number of talented athletes prepared to play in college and the minor leagues.
