O Joyous Day

Monday, June 14, 2004

Today is shaping up to be a great Cubs day! As I type, the Cubs are beating Houston 5-0 in the 8th. And...

The mail came today and finally brought my long awaited 2004 Cubs media guide. Having never owned one, I decided that my new job as chief (read: sole :) ) contributor of the newest, bestest, greatest Cubs fan site on the web, made me an official member of the media, and so I deserved to get one.

Now I doubt Paul Sullivan of the Tribune, or Bruce Miles of the Sun-Times (editor's note: Bruce Miles is the beat writer for the Daily Herald... my bad.) had to buy their copy on ebay, but we (read: I) here at thecubdom.com are taking it one step at a time. Today, buying my own media guide. Tommorrow? Probably still buying it.

Anyhow, since I had an exam today, I haven't gotten to look at it too deeply, but what I have seen is amazing. 356 pages of information about the Chicago Cubs. Its not a coffee table book, or a novel, its just pure unadulterated Cubs info. Stats, historical feats, player bios, and more. It not only has the correct seating capacity of Wrigley Field (through January which explains the discrepancy between Cubs.com and ESPN.com as I talked about two post's ago.) but the break down of the types and number of seats at Wrigley.

  • 2,550 Infield Club Box
  • 960 Outfield Club Box
  • 3,950 Infield Field Box
  • 3,216 Outfiled Field Box
  • 2,394 Terrace Boxes
  • 12,200 Terrace Reserved
  • 1,059 Mezzanine Boxes
  • 5,106 Upper Deck Boxes
  • 4,380 Upper Deck Reserved
  • 119 Family Section
  • 107 Group Section
  • 3,304 Bleachers
  • 213 Dugout Level

Did you know? 6 players have worn #23 for the Cubs? Leroy Herrmann (1932), Carmen Fanzone (1971-1974), Pete LaCock (1975-1976), Mike Gordon (1977-1978), Jim Tracy (1980-1981), and Ryne Sandberg (1982-1994, 1996-1997). Ahh, the joys of my media guide :)
