There will soon be a $5 million Kerry Wood Cubs Field on Chicago's North Side.

The former pitching ace and Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts were among those breaking ground Thursday at Clark Park.

Public league students and others will play at the facility.

Several different organizations are paying for the park, including Kerry Wood's Foundation, the Cubs and the Park District, which will operate it once it's completed next year.
