⚾️ What does this marquee sign mean to you?
Chicago cares a lot about its history - sports history, cultural history, - and the marquee serves that purpose in a lot of ways. For 80 years, the red sign has been a welcome to our ballpark, our city, and our friendly confines.
For us, the marquee served a purpose today by providing a backdrop for many photographs with each other and friends. I clearly chose the best one to share with you here. 🤩
I have written the words “I took my dad to Wrigley Field” in my journal everyday for months and have dreamed of this day for years. There is nothing cooler than checking of bucket-list items with my dad. Today was THE BEST day. // I am SOOO grateful for Mary Kay! Without this little side hustle, this trip couldn’t have happened! #mymklife#starttodayjournal#taylormadeformarykay#wrigleyfield#barryhawkersdayoff
“Touch’m All” Day 5 - This morning came early as we left Milwaukee in route back to Chicago. We arrived at Chicago’s Wrigley Field at 8:15am to join a guided tour of the second oldest ball field in MLB. The cold wind met us as soon as we left the car. Actually snowflakes were seen at the stadium that was built back in 1914. Bundled in layers of clothes we braved the elements with our guide Robert out onto the field as he gave us a 1.5 hour history lesson and tour of this grand park. This is where the famous 1932 “shot was called” by Ruth, when the other team was bullying him. After a coffee break, we headed back in for the game. By the 2nd inning our teeth and joins were hurting so bad from the 45 mph winds we took a time out to have a delicious braut. The wind chill made us abandon the game early since we could find nowhere to shield us from wind and also watch the game. While at the game, I befriended a elder man that worked at the stadium. Don was 8 years old when he came to his first ball game in 1945. He lives a few blocks from the stadium and had a deep love for the Dodgers.... NOT. Don has been working for HIS stadium/Cubbies for 17 years. Don Cubs when on to freeze (with help from the cold wind) the AZ Diamondbacks bats and beat them 5-1. Now back in the truck and on the road.
