Cubs vs. Boston series - one foul ball!
The Boston Red Sox came to Wrigley field this weekend to play the Cubs. The Cubs won the first 2 games and were going for a sweep on Sunday night. It was bad news for the Cubs, however, and they ended up losing 8-1.
Our seats were on the third base side in the 4th row right by the bullpen. In the 4th inning Derrek Lee smashed a line drive down the line that hit the guy right in front of me and then I was able to palm the ball right in front of me and I dived down among the beer cups and peanut shells to get the ball. It was quite a shot!
I never knew that Bud Selig's first name is Allan, but it is that way on the ball...
