Announcing: Tribune Mailbag

This Thursday, we’re launching Tribune Mailbag, a new series where — you guessed it — an athlete fields questions directly from fans.

For our debut column, we’ll be keeping the athlete’s identity a secret. However, we can offer one clue: it’s a retired baseball player.

To join in, email your questions to by Wednesday, August 26 (10 p.m. ET). Include your first name and where you’re writing from.

The first Mailbag rolls out Thursday morning.
