Fun to draw for a win It’s rather funny how doing public scorecards changes your perception of the game. You want the win, not just for the win; but because a win usually comes with some good events to highlight. A home run, maybe. Or some stellar defense. Doing a scorecard when your team doesn’t […]

Nerve damage? I did so much writing and drawing, that the tip of my right middle finger became numb. The way I hold a pencil, my middle finger gets a lot of pressure. Whenever I write anything, I tend to push pretty hard. On the scorecards, I write really small, so I need more control, […]
The first World Series game at Wrigley Field in a long, long time! With the series tied up 1-1, there was great hope leading up to this game. The wind was blowing out at Wrigley, and the Indians had a fly ball pitcher on the mound. It was time for the Cubs to start hitting […]
For the last four years, Father Burke Masters has held mass at Wrigley Field before Sunday home games, inviting beer vendors, ushers and anyone who works at the ballpark. Before Sunday night’s 1-0 loss to the Dodgers, Cubs catcher Miguel Montero joined the group in Section 209 along the left-field line. Read the rest: Montero […]
The first time Wrigley Field has ever seen a postseason series clinched! The Cubs won at home, defeating the St. Louis Cardinals in the NLDS series. I had the honor of being at the game, and thus, keeping a scorecard The stories behind some of the points on the scorecard Free W towels! With 15 strikeouts for the […]
A professional baseball player expressing his dreams on the front of a baseball card. Looking at autographs, you wonder where is the soul. You want to see some sort of meaning behind a player’s autograph. On the 2013 Leaf Trinity “Authentic Inscription” series, players are to write inscriptions next to their autographs. Some players […]
In 1932, Cubs fans didn’t watch games from the rooftops of apartment buildings outside Wrigley Field. Nope, instead people climbed trees to sneak a view of the ball park. Makes you wonder if someone stood at the foot of the tree and charged $250 to climb up and sit for the length of the game. […]
Snow has fallen on Wrigley Field’s opening day at least four times. The Chicago Tribune has a gallery of weather photos for the past 100 years of Wrigley Field.
Supernova Check out the size of the sun in this 1959 Topps card. Who knew the sun went supernova in 1958? Maybe it has something to do with the sun setting in the north behind the Wrigley Field scoreboard. Hank Aaron and Eddie Mathews don’t seem to be all that concerned. Maybe because these Fence […]
I love homerun photos of the crowd. This photo by the Chicago Tribune features a near homerun. Look at that one fan totally reaching out. The ball is a mere inches from the net.
This is pretty exciting as a Cubs fan. By dumb luck, I was able to see Ryne Sandberg’s last game as a Cub in 1997. By the same random measure, I will see his first return in uniform to Wrigley Field since then! I just learned he’s third base coach for the Phillies. My brother […]
The original mockup by the Ricketts makes the outfield advertising look all nice and pretty. The Jumbotron has nice green ads to match the nice green Jumbotron, which matches the original scoreboard. But these are just mockup ads to hide how loud the real advertising will be. My brother took the Ricketts’ mockup and put […]
