Cubs 2014 August




Chicago Cubs vs Baltimore Orioles
August 23, 2014

The day started out with rain early in the morning, but it cleared up nicely while en route to the game.  It was a little humid, but breezes came off the lake, making it pretty comfortable for the game.  The game the day before had been rained out after 2 innings and was rained out again the following day.  We picked the right day to go!  The Cubs won over the Orioles 4 - 1.

They were giving away bobbleheads today.

I'm not sure if you can really tell by the pictures, but Baltimore had a great presence at the game.  You can see all of the orange shirts in the stands.

First pitch of the game.

Our bus arrives and it's time to head home.  We stopped at Culver's in Michigan City for a bite to eat.  There was another Cardinal bus which had arrived before us, but they had pretty much ordered already and were seated.  They had a 42 passenger bus, so I figured with their 40 passengers and our 50, Culver's served 90 people, plus their regular customers, in great time.  Culver's always does a great job in handling groups.
