Chicago July 23rd-25th
travelers spent the gorgeous weekend of July 23rd-25th in
Chicago as the rival St. Louis Cardinals rolled into town for a 3 game series
at Wrigley Field. This weekend’s group also stayed in the heart of the
Magnificent Mile at the Chicago Marriott Magnificent Mile.
On Saturday, the Cubs jumped out to an early lead, getting
some big homeruns from young guns Tyler Colvin and Starlin Castro. Tom
Gorzelanny pitched 6 solid innings, and the bullpen held on down the stretch to
maintain the lead before Carlos Marmol shut the door for good in the 9th,
capping a 6-5 win for the Cubbies.
After the tour, the group arrived in the Stadium Club for
their VIP luncheon with Ryan Theriot. Ryan took time to give each fan an
autograph and a photo with him.
Ryan then took part in a candid question and answer session
with the group and clued them in to some of his own thoughts on his play and
other happenings in the league.
Despite Sunday’s outcome, the Cubs Destination group had a
great time at Wrigley. Not only did the Cubbies win the series, but the group’s
behind -the-scenes access during such a pivotal series was really exciting!
