SideLines: The magic kingdom at Clark and Addison
Twenty years ago, I was fortunate to see a game at old Yankee Stadium. Sitting in the top row behind home plate, I envisioned Babe Ruth in right field, Joe DiMaggio patrolling center, and Lou Gehrig gently kicking the dust in front of first. I wondered what it was like to see them in person.
Great old ball parks are like that, living museums holding memories and inspiring imagination. For long-time sports fans like me, they are like giant family photo albums.
I recently spent an afternoon at Wrigley Field. There’s been a lot of talk about moving the Cubs’ old ball park to the suburbs. I’m sure there are a lot of practical reasons – mainly money – but I really hope they don’t. It just won’t be the same.
