BC’s own Ryan Dempster will be pitching for the Chicago Cubs on Opening Day at Wrigley Field. This honour has usually been held by Carlos Zambrano, who has opened the last six seasons.

Zambrano, who’s known for his fiery temper, has congratulated the Sechelt native on the Opening Day opportunity.

Cubs manager Mike Quade made the decision after meeting with Dempster, Zambrano and Matt Garza.

Dempster will be on the mound facing the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday, April 1st, 2011.
