Saturday, May 25, 1991, to be exact.
Montreal vs. the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.
Don't really even remember going to this game but apparently I did.
Here are some stats from the contest:
It was 66 degrees at game time with 16,961 in attendance. That is really low attendance at a Saturday matinee at the Beer Palace....I mean Wrigley.
The wind was blowing in 14 miles per hour but that didn't seem to matter come game time.
The game took 2:32 to play. That is the seven inning stretch time of today's games.
Mike Bielecki started for the Cubs and went 5 innings of two hit, no run ball for the win.
Chuck McElroy relieved him for the four inning save. A four inning save.
|No Expo card|
Damon Berryhill went deep with a 3 run jack for the Cubs. Luis Salazar And Ryne Sandberg both cracked solo shots of Mahler. I absolutely love the fact that someone paid to get Luis slabbed.
The Cubs went on to a 5-1 win, their fourth in a row. It was the fourth loss in a row for Le Expos.
Buck Rodgers was the manager of the Expos then. That is an appropriate name for the captain of a team which played underneath a space ship.
Here is the link to the Back To Baseball replay. That site will suck you in if you let it. I think its the crack of the bat that gets you.
