Last night at Wrigley Field

Here we were looking southeast toward downtown from Wrigley Field.

This is the intersection of Addison and Sheffield on the southeast side of Wrigley.

The rain held off and there was a nice sunset. The temperature at the beginning of the game (7:00 p.m) was 78 degrees, the dewpoint was a muggy 67, and the barometric pressure was 29.91". Winds were light, but there was a nice cool breeze coming off Lake Michigan.

The lights were installed in 1988. The Cubs always played day games before then.

This shot is looking toward the northwest, into the left field corner.

This is a shot of the scoreboard, right field bleachers, and Sheffield Avenue.

This is a shot of the bleachers and center field scoreboard. The lakefront of Lake Michigan is a little over a mile to the east.

Fans love to watch the game from the roof tops along Sheffield Avenue.
