1950s Cubs all over again

Chicago Sun-Times - - OPINION -

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.

Daniel M. Filipek, Mount Prospect
