Pittsburgh Pirates at Chicago Cubs

15 August 2009 No Comment

As was the theme with the last couple Chicago Cubs home stands, I planned to meet a friend in the stadium so I decided to buy a standing room only (SRO) seat for $15. As I have mentioned before SRO at Wrigley Field is a good deal for multiple reasons.

1) It is the cheapest ticket in the ballpark.
2) Fans do not have to pay a premium buying tickets from a ticket broker or StubHub.
3) Although most people will plan to stand in the SRO areas, this is a bad idea. There are always plenty of empty seats in the 200 sections of Wrigley Field where 2 to 4 people who are attending together can almost always find seats to sit together. Remember that you may have to move two or three times before settling in but that is a small price to pay when considering you only spent $15 per ticket.

The Game
The Cubs defeated the Pirates for the second day in a row 3-1, behind the pitching of Tom Gorzelanny who the Cubs acquired from Pittsburgh on July 30. Wrigley Field was only buzzed a couple of times from Air Force jets on Saturday compared to the dozen or so times from Friday.
