Maddon: More night games
Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon would like to see more night games at Wrigley and day baseball mostly limited to Saturdays and Sundays. “This constantly having to rush to the ballpark and not having the normal method during the course of the day, it does matter because then you go on the road, it’s entirely different,” he said.
The Cubs didn’t add lights to Wrigley until 1988. They are allowed to play 43 night games and would like to get that number up to 54.
Maddon dismissed the idea that the Cubs have an advantage over a visiting team that mostly plays at night. “I think 107 years indicates it wasn’t such a good idea,” he said. Etc.
