This is my scorecard from my last appearance at a baseball game at Wrigley Field.
The date was May 20, 2005 and the “Don’t Stop Believin’ ” White Sox handled the Cubs 5-1 on a beautiful day before a fairly split crowd of 38,988 at Clark and Addison.
The win, which came at the expense of future Hall of Famer Greg Maddux and featured homers from Joe Crede and Jermaine Dye, improved the first-place Sox to an eye-popping 30-12.
The next time I went to Wrigley Field was to see Paul McCartney perform an epic show on July 31, 2011.
I was so satisfied with both experiences that it wouldn’t bother me if I never saw another baseball game there again!
