Friend in Chicago sent me a scanned copy of Page 5 of the Monday Tribune.

It is a full page color ad promoting the minor league game tomorrow at Wrigley.

One minor detail is missing from the ad. Nowehere does it say what time the game starts.

Unbelievable.

No need. Noboby goes there to watch baseball anyway. The yuppies usually wake up around noon and stumble to the beerpark.

Does this game count against their total number of night games allowed by the city? Were they allowed to host this game because there is no possible way they can host game 7 of the WS?

They set this up well before the All-Star Game.

After just seeing the TV commercial for this event, they also don't mention a time on their 30 second ad that they have running on CSN Chicago.
