Since I don't post The Calendar on the weekend and I screwed the pooch yesterday you get THREE questions today:

 

1. From the weekend:

Wrighley Field is bounded by what 4 streets and what sides are the streets on.  (Double non-calendar bonus if you can get the "5th street")

 

2. From yesterday:

Which catcher tied a Cubs record with 14 total bases on April 17, 1974?

 

3. From today:

Who set a Cubs record by stealing home twice against Cincinnati on June 28, 1910?

Clark - 3rd base, Addison - 1st base, Sheffield - RF, Waveland LF.  No clue on the 5th street.

 

George Mitterwald was their main catcher around then, so I'll go with him.

 

Johnny Evers (stealing home twice)?

1. Correct - No clue is not the 5th street

2. Correct - Three homers and a double, driving in eight runs, in the Cubs, 18-9, victory over the Pirates at Wrigley.

3. WRONG - YOU LOSE...

Seminary and Kenmore are close by, so I'll guess one of them.

And since Evers is wrong, I'll guess Chance for the SB

Google Maps (at least used to) list Seminary as running through the player's parking lot.

Nope, which really only leaves one more player.

Tinker, then. The only reason I even knew Seminary was a street was because of BNFL.

I sure miss the puppet.   Burger boy quit making shit up.  Wrigley Field is not bound by Seminary. It used to be a seminary (Lutheran Theological Seminary), but that was a long time ago also.

Now you're calling Google Maps a liar??????

I'm out here representing the people of The Calender and all you guys care about doing is dragging it into the mud.
