Cubs and White Sox 2017 Baseball Season is Underway!

Pitchers and Catchers report!

...it's that time of year and a reminder for Chicago baseball fans to celebrate. 

The 2017 baseball season is off and running.

Maybe my images will bring a smile and a good memory of time spent in Chicago's two major league ball parks.

You can find these images in detail at my online store.

**  The famous Wrigley Field quote is attributable to the Public Address announcer Pat Pieper, who made the following announcement prior to every game:
 "Attention, attention please......have your pencils... and scorecards ready.... for the correct lineups.... for today's ballgame."

Two Chicago Public Golf Courses that challenge a golfer's ability as well as offering a spectacular view of the city of Chicago are included in this blog. Find these two etchings available in my online shop.

The Marovitz Golf Course is a nine-hole championship challenge on the lake at Waveland Avenue.  The course was designed and built in 1898 by Tom Bendelow and Edward Dearie.

The 2016 Baseball Season has come to a close. The famous W flag adorns Wrigley Field.


The Chicago Baseball Fans were rewarded with a long overdue World Series win.

                Congratulations to the highly talented team.

The good news is that this team and Coach will return in the Spring 2017 and not lose momentum seeking another World Championship.

Two etchings of Wrigley Field are views from the "L" platform and can include the famous pre-game announcement from long time public address spokesman Pat Pieper.
