    At league direction, Busch stadium was the site designated for any Chicago Cubs playoff or World Series home games from 1986 until 1988, when Wrigley Field finally installed lights.

      I remember that, too.

      I guess the National League felt that if the Cubs made it to the World Series and played their games at Comiskey Park, it would give the American League team an advantage.

      Those were the days when the NL and AL were more autonomous.

        So let me get this straight. MLB thought that a game played about ten miles south of Wrigley Field would be a benifit to the opposing team, but playing 300 miles to the SW, in the home of the Cubs greatest natural rival would be a great thing?

          They should have just let the Cubs play potential playoff games in their own park. In the goddamn daytime.

            I'm just guessing, but I think they felt since the AL team would've played games at Comiskey during the season and the Cubs obviously wouldn't have, there could've been some kind of advantage.

              kah,

              I agree with you, but lest not forget who really calls the shots. That's right, TELEVISION. Why else would we have a game starting at 11:30 PM a couple years ago.

                  Exactly. Y'all are missing the big picture here.
