1950s Cubs all over again
Watching the Cubs and White Sox exhibition game on TV, I was reminded of all the empty seats in Wrigley Field for weekday day games in the late 1950s. Philip K. Wrigley was too cheap to install lights for night games. The upper deck was not even open for seating. I also remember having to beg for mustard to put on my plain, dried-out Wrigley Field hot dog.
Thank God back then for Jack Brickhouse and WGN! Now that’s gone, too.
