My Favorite Games: #13

Today’s game occurred on September 15th, 2004. It was my brothers 21st birthday so I bought tickets to the Cubs game vs. the Pirates at Wrigley field. We were in the bleachers so we got up to Wrigleyville early. My brothers first bar was the Cubby Bear. We went in there before the game to get warmed up a little. We then decided to get in line to get a good seat in the bleachers. When we went in we received scratch off cards for a free Sammy Sosa baseball. You have to remember that he was still huge at this time. My brother won a ball so he was taken down under the bleachers to the main part of the stadium. They took him past places that I will probably never get to see. He got his ball, and we were able to see a good game. The Cubs just pasted the Pirates. The Cubs won the game 13 to 5. Sammy celebrated his day by going 3 for 4 with two home runs and 5 RBI’s. Mark Prior was the starting pitcher for the Cubs. He gave up 5 runs in 5 innings. A typical Prior day. Well he didn’t get hurt so I guess he was off a little. One of the best parts of the day was talking to Craig Wilson in right field for the Pirates. He has a sweet mullet, and it was fun talking to him about it. As you can see below Sammy likes the rock and roll as well.
We had a good time, and celebrated the day by stopping at BW3’s in Michigan City on the way home to meet with some of my friends.
