First Night Game at Wrigley Field (8/8/88) Canvas Mega Ticket - Chicago Cubs
On August 8, 1988 the Cubs and Phillies were scheduled to meet in the first night game at historic Wrigley Field. Cubs right-hander Rick Sutcliffe threw the first pitch. Phillies left fielder Phil Bradley hit the first home run. Cubs second baseman and future Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg stole the first base. Officially, of course, none of that happened. Heavy rain interrupted play after 3 1/2 innings and the game was called after a delay of two hours and 10 minutes. Technically, the first night game came the following evening, when the Cubs defeated the first-place Mets, 6-4. Details, details. Anybody who was there on 8-8-88 will tell you that's the date that counts. And they're probably right. Because that just might have been the most publicized, scrutinized, highly-anticipated, talked-about and written-about regular-season game ever. Especially for a dog-days matchup between a pair of second-division teams. Capture the memory of the lights being turned on at Wrigley for the first time with this Canvas Mega Ticket. AVAILABLE IN TWO SIZES:
Small: 8 (W) x 28 (H) x ¾ (D)
Regular: 9 (W) x 32 (H) x ¾ (D) DID YOU ATTEND THIS GAME?
If so, have your ticket made into a Personalized Mega Ticket. It's a one-of-a-kind item that will capture the memory of being there. We can create a Personalized Mega Ticket featuring your Section, Row, and Seat. Select personalized option ($20 additional cost). Officially licensed by MLB®, Mega Tickets® are sports history turned into unique wall art.
