Baedeker: Wrigley Field, Chicago

Even though the Reds lost today to the Diamondbacks 4 - 2, I thought I'd post some photos of a trip to Chicago in honor of Opening Day. It was a 2006 trip to Wrigley Field to watch the Reds take on Dusty Baker's former team the Cubs. The Reds won but a lot of the fun was sitting in the bleachers and going to the bars across the street after the game.

Author's Note: Baedeker was a German-based travel guide begun in 1827 by Karl Baedeker. These comprehensive guides were hugely popular in Europe, the United States, and throughout the British Empire. I have adopted the moniker for all my travel pieces beyond Cincinnati. Given its German history and stately influence, I thought it fitting for the Queen City.
