I'm making only my second visit to Wrigley Field ever next Tuesday, when I go to see both the first and second games against the Brewers. I have a couple of general questions about Wrigley Field since I'm practically a newbie at the ballpark. However I'm no newbie when it comes to the Cubs. I've watched them for quite some time, I'm a huge fan and a loyal reader of BCB, don't post as often as I probably should. Regardless, I was wondering three general questions about Wrigley:
1) How early before the ballgame starts does the park open? I'm guessing 2 hours or so before, but not sure.
2) Can I leave the ballpark between when the first game ends and when the second one begins? Again, I'm guessing so because the tickets for each game are separate, but wanted to check with anyone who might know this type of stuff.
3) Which game would be better to buy bleacher seats for? The day game or the night one? Do the lights at Wrigley allow you to see the action just as well from way out in the bleachers if it's nighttime? Also, do different rules apply to how early you can arrive if you're a "bleacher bum?" :)
4) If any of you have sections that you regularly sit in, or commonly know to be great seats, let me know in the comments... I'm just looking for a good view! I've attached below the current available seats to the 7:05 PM game that Tuesday, maybe you guys could point out some good available seats if you see them?
One bonus question if you're up for it: this may be hard to answer, but what are the best sections to catch foul balls in? Are there any typical foul ball "hot zones?"
Thanks for any answers you guys might have, I'd really appreciate it!
