The ball game
The band had the opportunity to go and see a ball-game at the famous Wrigley field stadium, Chicago on Saturday 5th May. The Cubs were at home to the LA Dodgers. It was quite a game as I’m sure most baseball fans in the Chicago area will remember. The final score was Cubs-20, Dodgers-1. Unfortunately we had to leave at the top of the 8th inning but listened to the rest of the game in the van on the way to sound check.
