The atmosphere was electric at Wrigley Field on Wednesday afternoon as former Cubs greats were on the North Side to celebrate Wrigley's historic 100th birthday.

Everyone of relevance appeared to be in attendance at Wrigley. Except for one person: Sammy Sosa.

And Sosa doesn't agree with the organization leaving him out of the festivities.

"I think there is something that has to be resolved," Sosa told Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes. "If there is something to clarify, we will sit down and clear it up. Time has given me the maturity to reflect upon many things, including knowing that one side doesn’t have to be right all the time.

"I should have been there; I would have liked to have been there. The Cubs know where to find me, and I hope to have the chance to clear up any misunderstanding."

The relationship between Sosa and the Cubs organization has been shaky since the slugger left the team in 2004.

After all the memories Sosa created in Chicago, do you think the franchise is in the wrong for leaving him out of the Wrigley 100 celebration?
