Cubs Convention Calendar: April
Ninety-eight years ago the Cubs moved in, but in 1914 the first game at Weeghman Park was played between the Chicago Federals and the Kansas City Packers of the Federal League. The Federals downed the Packers 9-1 on April 23rd, 1914.
Side note: I frequently look at the outcome of the first pitch of a game or the final score of said game and say, "It's going to be a good season!" ... or... "It's going to be a long year." You know, like the result of one event, an extremely small sample size at that, has the power to portend the future.
The Cubs and Federals were both victorious in their first games at Weeghman Park, which would have had me saying, "We will see many championships on this field in the years to come." Huh.
Me thinks there is a flaw to my system and I have 100+ years of data to back it up. Sigh.
