Old Wrigley Field Painting

The above print is a painting done by Andy Jurinko.

Many years ago I purchased a calendar of Jurinko’s prints of numerous old baseball cathedrals.

I cut out the Wrigley Field print and had it framed, which I still have today.

The painting is of a game between the rival Cardinals and the Cubs on Sunday August 14, 1988.

The Cubs won 8-3 on a hot 93-degree day at the Friendly Confines.

Darrin Jackson’s pinch-hit 2-R HR in the bottom of the sixth gave the Cubs a
4-3 lead. Mike
Bielecki pitched seven strong innings allowing three runs and Les Lancaster earned the save throwing two innings of no run, no hit baseball.

In The Print:
Rafael Palmeiro (2-for-5) is playing left field
Ryne Sandberg (0-for-3) is at second base
Mark Grace (1-for-4) is at first
Shawon Dunston (0-for-4) at short
Vance Law (1-for-3) at third
Mitch Webster (2-for-4) in center
Gary Varsho (1-for-2) in right
Damon Berryhill (2-for-3) catching
Andre Dawson pinch-hit, walked and scored a run

In the Cardinals lineup:
LF Vince Coleman
SS Ozzie Smith
2B Jose Oquendo
RF Tom Brunansky
3B Terry Pendleton
CF Curt Ford
1B Mike Laga
C  Tony Pena

*No batter’s eye in CF
*No advertisement on old Budweiser building
*Notice the smaller bleacher seating in LF
*Notice the absence of rooftop stands on Waveland Ave
*Only two divisions at the time, as seen with the flags atop CF scoreboard
