After reading Al's front page article titled Cubs Reveal Full Plan For Wrigley's 100th Anniversary, and how they are going to do a "Wrigley Field's 100 Greatest Moments", I was wondering what the BCB community would choose as their top 3? Remember now, it HAD to have happened AT Wrigley Field (for instance, the clincher of 1984 wouldn't count because it was in Pittsburgh). There's a few of us "old timers" that go back quite a bit further than some/most on here, but that doesn't matter. Whether you weren't born yet, just a kid, or an adult, choose what you think should be the top 3.
Mine would be:
1) May 12, 1970 - Ernie Banks hits 500th home run.
2) August 19, 1969 - Ken Holtzman's no hitter against the Braves. Hank Aaron's potential home run blown back into the park and Billy Williams snagging it in the vines. (Side note: Only the 2nd no hitter to EVER be thrown, up to this day, with ZERO strike outs.)
3) August 8, 1988 - First night game...even tho Mother Nature wasn't in favor of night baseball at Wrigley Field on that day.
Have at it.
