The Chicago Cubs play at Wrigley Field which was built in 1914, seating 41,160. This older field has good seating except where the vertical supports block your area of view. We were in the last row on the upper level and had only a minor support blockage. It was a warm day, but in the last row the breeze helped keep us cool. The Cubs were playing the Los Angeles Dodgers. It was a close game with the Cubs getting shut out 3-0. The box score was Dodgers R-3, H-7, E-0 and Cubs R-0, H-6, E-1. The field lines are RF-353', RC & LC-360', CF-400', and LF-355'. The Chicago Cubs sign is outside the center field grandstand area. The street with the school bus is Waveland Avenue outside left field. You can see some of the houses and people sitting on top of them in several pictures. The other street is in the next picture is Sheffield Avenue, the street with the house that Barry Bonds broke the window in this year. The scoreboard is all manually operated. It has the Cubs score in the lower left corner, the National League on the left side and the American League on the right side. This scoreboard shows the score inning by inning. Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne were featured today. Sharon threw out a first pitch and both of them sang "Take Me Out to the Ballgame." No mascot appeared. There is a great statue of Harry Caray outside the right field corner of the stadium (Photo Credit-Gary Stowe). Attending the game with us today were Andrea's brother Gary and his wife Ruth.
