The Cubs have had two schedule changes for games against the Brewers at Wrigley Field this year. The first was a postponed game on May 20 that wound up played on July 6; the other was last Friday’s game, played at 7:05 p.m. instead of the original 1:20 p.m.
And now there’s a game-time change for a Cubs/Brewers game at Miller Park:
Brewers announce Sept. 22 game vs #Cubs at Miller Park will start at 6:35 pm CT, not 7:10 pm CT— Carrie Muskat (@CarrieMuskat) September 11, 2017
Here’s the reason for the time change:
Well. That’s as good a reason as any, and it means that the game, which is scheduled for a WGN-TV broadcast by the Cubs, will be watchable nationwide on ESPN (outside the Chicago and Milwaukee markets). It’s likely to be an important game in the N.L. Central race.
Personally, I think all the Cubs and Brewers players, gameday employees, and fans going to the game can handle this 35-minute change without saying a word about it.
At least, that’s what I’m hoping. I just wanted all of you to know.
