New York at Chicago (NL) – Game 1

Today, for the first time since April 18, 1980, both the New York Mets and New York Yankees are playing in Chicago on the same day. I am planning to attend both games in this scheduling quirk. The last time two teams from the same metropolitan area played in the same city on the same day was April 15, 1997 when the New York teams hosted the Los Angeles Dodgers and Anaheim Angels, respectively.

In the first game of the day, the Cubs defeated the Mets 8-1 with Ronny Cedeno hitting a grand slam (his first home run of the year). The Ultimate Sports Wife and I went to Wrigleyville Dogs before the game – a good hot dog stand about 1 block North of Wrigley Field.
