KC Cougar Doubleheader Photos


Here are some photos that I took at the Kane County Cougar doubleheader on Sunday, June 22, 2014. I've got quite a few here of Kyle Schwarber. I hope you enjoy them. If you'd like to see them individually, you can click on any photo and arrow through them that way, rather than the collage Flickr sets up.

Attention Rooters, Kranks and Kranklets


Come one and all to witness the gentlemanly art of laying the willow on the onion at an 1860 Base Ball game in McHenry County on June 21st between the McHenry County Independents and the Lake County Athletics in Prairie Grove, IL.

Wrigley 100th Birthday Photos


Here are some of the pictures I took from the 100th Birthday celebration if anyone is interested.

Pictures from Opening Week


These are mostly just pics of the park and stairwells in case anyone cares to see how they bedecked Wrigley for their 100th Home Opener.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas at Wrigley


Thought the tree at Wrigley looked quite beautiful the other day with the snow falling down. These aren't the best. I'm not very good at taking pictures with my phone (unlike Shanghai Badger who can take awesome shots with one while flying a plane). But I wanted to share them, along with wishes for a wonderful holiday season to all of you.

Photos from Aug. 30, 2013 Return of Ryne Sandberg


Here are some of the photos that I took of Ryne Sandberg's first game managing at Wrigley. I managed to get in early enough to get some photos of him during batting practice before they shooed people away that didn't have tickets for that area and he disappeared (probably doing interviews, etc.). I apologize if some of you find this inappropriate, but there are a few here that I thought might be interested in seeing them.

Important Role of Bullpen Catchers


Nice to see bullpen catchers getting some attention for the hard work they do. Sorry, you may have to answer a lame question or two to finish the article.

Photos from Cubs/Diamondbacks June 1st, 2013


These include shots of Sveum's ejection (unfortunately the tall man in front of me got in the way of some of them). Also, some rain delay theatre including the rainbow, a shot for you Hawks fans and the scoreboard hitting the midnight hour.

Baseball Exhibit at Discovery World in Milwaukee


This is a small exhibit about the evolution of baseball equipment. I'd say it's worth the visit if you have children that you'd like to take to this museum. I found it rather amusing how many of the changes (that seem like no-brainers now) took awhile to become accepted because they weren't considered "manly."

Photos from PNC


Here are some of the photos I took on our trip to Pittsburgh on May 26th and 27th. It was a long ride back to IL after seeing their 11th and then their 12th loss in a row.

Photos from Miller Park


Here are some photos I took at Miller Park on 5/11/12. Most are from batting practice.

Pictures of New LED Scoreboard


I've seen some questions here asking what the new video board/patio looks like. Here are some photos I took of it Sat. 4/7/12 along with one of the new store across the street, some of how green the ivy is (for this time of year) and the Eamus Catuli sign without the numbers.

Soto will miss spring opener


Guess he's not in the shape of his life.


Cubs' Fantasy Camp 2012 as seen by a Player's Wife

My husband Paul and I just got back from a trip to Randy Hundley's Fantasy Camp in Mesa, AZ. I sent him as a 25th anniversary gift. Since we have two kids in college, the timing wasn't the best for...


Evers on "creating a winning team" in 1910

About a year ago I read the book Touching Second-The Science of Baseball (1910) by John J. Evers and Hugh S. Fullerton. Don't quiz me on it. I have a frightfully bad memory. What I do remember was...


Randy Hundley Fantasy Camp ???

A Trip to the Minors and Little League (Vacation Pics)

On a quest for better baseball than the parent club has been offering lately we decided to check out some minor league games as our family vacation. I know it's usually boring to look at other...


Why all the Name Calling?

I have been following BCB since 2008. I have never seen so much name calling and personal attacks on this site. Seriously, it seems like it is becoming epidemic. I'm wondering what on earth is...


Learning to keep score.

Last year my husband Paul bravely and patiently tried to teach me how to keep score. After finally learning the player position numbers (something that took me about 2 years-yes, I'm that bad with...



Like many of you, I am saddened today by the news of Ron Santo's passing. I found out via a text message from my son. My response was "Oh no!" A short while later it hit me how fitting that...


OT-Vintage Base Ball 1860's Rules

Last weekend my family and I went up to Big Bend, WI to a see a couple of vintage 1860's base ball (yes-it was two words) matches (games). It was a nice break from the type of ball the Cubs have...
