Scott Sanderson pitched for the Cubs for six seasons including the 1984 and 1989 National League Eastern Division championship years. He retired in 1996 after nearly 20 seasons in the big leagues.
Lance Briggs retired last year after playing his entire 12 year career with the Bears that included a Super Bowl appearance and seven consecutive Pro Bowls.
Dave Otto pitched out of the Cubs bullpen in 1994 as part of a career that included stops in Oakland, Cleveland and Pittsburgh.
