Yosh Kawano spent nearly 65 years at Wrigley Field, working the Cubs or visitors’ clubhouse. His younger brother, Nobe, held similar jobs in Los Angeles, where he prepared the Dodgers to take the field.
When it comes to the World Series rings they handed out to staff members, the Chicago Cubs are being as protective as a momma bear.  A 2016 ring that had been consigned to Lelands’ current auction has been pulled after conversations between the team and the auction company.
