July 25, 2009 - Final day of one of our baseball road trips. We headed out Wrigley Field, The View from our seats on one of our baseball travel toursFriendly Confines, to see the Cubs take on the Cincinnati Reds. Admittedly, growing up a Reds fan, I was pulling for the "other" team but to no avail. The Cubs completed the sweep and sent my Reds packing. Click here to see the box score from the game.

Having been to games at Wrigley both at day and night, it's easy for me to see why they resisted putting lights in for so long. In my opinion, it's so much better to see day games there. The atmosphere is a total party buzz throughout the game and you know it's going to continue on for many more hours in Wrigleyville.

As the second oldest of the MLB baseball stadiums, one can't help but enjoy the charm of the ballpark. One also can't help but notice it's imperfections and crumbling infrastructure, too. When this team is sold, I'm certain that the new owners will need to address the challenges with the old ballpark. Even with its imperfections, it's still an awesome place for family tours.
