Interesting stuff SoxFan. I was also reading somewhere that there was issue over having 40000 people come to Wrigley Field for night games. Apparently the city is unable to handle an influx like that.
I don't get that. I heard the arguments at the time they were debating installing lights. The White Sox are in a residential neighborhood. They've had those kinds of crowds come into the city at night, and have never had an issue. The Bears have no problem, same with the Blackhawks and Bulls. The result has been the neighborhood nightclubs, bars, and restaurants have been doing gang buster business for Cubs night games.
The real problem is that Wrigley is not close to any major highway (US Cellular is by US 94, the Bears on Lake Shore Drive), and there is no parking, so there is a lot more foot traffic over a wider area to get to a Cubs game, and residents get a little skittish. There is actually more crime in the Wrigleyville area than at around the Cell, depsite the South Side stereotypes.
