Cubs Ace Kyle Hendricks Happy To Be Known As ‘The Professor’

A third of the way through the season, the Cubs still have the best record in the majors. But beyond all the highlights this team is filled with real characters with good stories. Pitcher Kyle Hendricks went to an Ivy League university, something that’s fairly rare in the world of baseball. His father moved here to watch him play, and when there’s no action on the diamond, he drives a limo for a living.

Hendricks talks about that and more when he went one-on-one with WBEZ’s sports contributor Cheryl Raye-Stout.
