Nice to have some baseball back at Wrigley Field! The Cubs start a seven-game homestand today, including the July 30 makeup date against the Astros.
Right-hander Aaron Harang (5-10, 4.17 ERA) pitches for the Reds.
All-star left-hander Ted Lilly attended last night’s PAWS Chicago 2009 Beach Party on North Ave. All proceeds benefitted PAWS Chicago’s humane efforts.
Putting on the big show
You can still get great seats from just $5 to this year’s Road to Wrigley game, pitting the Triple-A Iowa Cubs against the Las Vegas 51s on Sunday, Aug. 9 at 1:20 p.m. There will be loads of mascots, food and drink specials, inexpensive parking and, of course, kids run the bases after the game.
