Visit Wrigley Field

On my 30 by 30 list I wanted to visit Wrigley Field or Fenway Park. Since the cards fell right for Fenway Park, I have decided to put a visit Wrigley Field on this list.

I am a pretty big baseball fan. I am not the type that buys season tickets or watches every game on TV though. Heck, in a 162 game season, I might watch 25 full games. But there is something about being at a live baseball game that send my mind into nostalgic trance and puts me at peace for the day.

I grew up a Braves fan but over the years have grown such a deep appreciation for the history and nuances of the game including pitch counts, adjustments at the plate and on the mound, and opposite field hitting. The steroids scandal pisses me off because people who supposedly love the game have taken a crap on its history for personal gain.

Wrigley Field holds such historic significance to the game. I would have included Yankee stadium but (a) I hate the Yankees with a seething passion and (b) they have imploded the old stadium. But other than Wrigley and Fenway, name one other stadium in the entire world that consistently sells out despite consecutive loosing seasons.
