Todd Ricketts, Chicago Cubs Co-Owner, Nearly Has True Identity Exposed on 'Undercover Boss'?Todd Ricketts is the youngest member of the Ricketts family -- owners of the Chicago Cubs baseball team. The family is worth an estimated $1 billion. Still, Todd is no stranger to hard work. His father put in 80-hour weeks, and Todd wasn't allowed to join the family business until he was 30 -- his dad wanted him to rise or fall based on his own merits.

But there's hard work and then there's hard work -- as Todd learns on 'Undercover Boss' (Sun., 9PM ET on CBS). Todd goes undercover at Wrigley Field, working under the fake name of "Mark Dawson." And things don't go so smoothly.

First, "Mark" is fired from his position of bathroom cleaner in the Cubs' stadium. He gets in trouble during his next job as well. Todd/Mark tries to sell hot dogs, but has four dogs left over at the end of his shift. Ricketts throws the wieners in the trash, causing a confrontation with his supervisor.

Todd's third job leads to an even bigger problem. While parking cars in the stadium parking lot, Todd runs into an old college roommate -- and the encounter threatens to expose "Mark Dawson" as Mr. Todd Ricketts, member of the fabulously wealthy Ricketts clan. Uh-oh.

Will Todd be the first boss to have his cover blown on 'Undercover Boss'? He's quickly realizing that working for the Cubs isn't all fun and games. Can he survive his third day on the job? ... What will he learn from the experience?
