wrigley field inside featureZubaz pants, here I come.

I’ll be in the bleachers for tonight’s game – lower right-field corner by the LED board (blue BN shirt, blue/yellow shoes – come say hey) – which will be my first since the Javier Baez call up. I expect to catch his first Wrigley homer, and then struggle with the decision of whether to give it to the crying child next to me (while tears, inevitably, stream down my own cheeks).

Tsuyoshi Wada, as he has been, will try to ably follow up yet another successful Kyle Hendricks start. They get it done differently, but, so far, they’ve been getting it done.
