Question from an Astros fan

Hey guys, I'm an Astros fan that lives here in Chicago. My dad's birthday is on June 23rd (he's a Cubs fan) and the Cubs play the Astros on that day, so I'm thinking of possibly taking him to Wrigley for the game. He doesn't like sitting in the actual seats because they are so small (he is a little bigger and it isn't comfortable) so I was thinking of maybe getting bleacher tickets. I've heard of the brutality of how the bleacher bums treat away fans in the bleachers, do you really think it is that big of a deal if I sat out there? I'd of course be covered in Astros gear. I don't mind heckling, but does it get to the point where it actually gets dangerous? At previous games I've only sat in the regular seats and I've never encountered anything more than just heckling, but I've never tried sitting in the bleachers. I've heard of beer being thrown at away fans out there, I don't want to turn a nice day with my dad into something that isn't very enjoyable. What do you think?

By the way, good luck this year! Now that we're not in the same division I don't need to feel guilty for wearing occasional Cubs gear and going to Wrigley for some summer games!
