    Thanks for the answer.

    For those who were wondering if Steve Stone ever got married...

    BEST WISHES to Steve Stone, former broadcast color analyst for the Chicago Cubs and WGN-Channel 9, on his marriage to attorney Lisa Johnson on Sunday at the Sanctuary Hotel in Scottsdale, Ariz. I was told the bride looked radiant and Stone very handsome in his tux. Chicagoans who were on hand for the festivities included top restaurateur Rich Melman and wife Martha, WGN Radio's Dave Kaplan and wife Mindy, Chip Caray (now broadcasting for the Atlanta Braves) and his wife Susan, and businessman Lou Weisbach.

    How cool! Can you find yourself in the movie?
    FWIW, I was an extra in the movie "Lucas" - in the scene with the orchestra at Gilson Park in Wilmette.

    That's pretty cool. Was that Dick Tidrow pitching?

    I should scan my photos from the All Star Home Run contest in 1990 at Wrigley.

    Hey Diana, are you going to become an Orioles fan, or are you sticking with the team? :) Looks like the Cubs may sign Burnitz soon. I'm still hoping they will go for Aubrey Huff.

    I'd love to see your pictures! Upload 'em to a webpage and share the url's with us.

    I agree with you about that being Dick Tidrow. Of course, I could be wrong, but it looks like him.

    Any ideas on who the others are?

    I have some interesting stuff here, pics from back when the Cubs would play high school faculty teams at basketball in the off season, the All Star Game at White Sox park (way back when). etc.

    --------

    I'm sticking with the Cubs, but plan on following Sosa a bit wherever he lands. If this trade does go thru, he might not stay with that team.

    I do think that if Ryne Sandberg had done what Sosa did, the media would've left the story alone and it wouldn't be an issue so many months after the fact.

    Interesting Mark Grace quote here:

    If he did what? Steroids, corked bat, bad teammate, selfish,.... I guess you see my point. This is an accumulation of things, not one incident. That was just the proverbial straw that broke the gladiator's back. Or was that the sneeze? ;)

    Grace's comments give further insight to what a lot of people have been saying all along about Sammy.

    I just think that it is part of being a professional to be able to ignore any annoying behavior of your co-workers and focus on what you've been hired to do.

    I have more photos to share!

    This photo was from the second game of a double header. I was given tickets from people leaving after the first game and they had some really wonderful and unusual seats.

    A very large and wide picture of the press box.

    Looks like a Kingman homerun against the Astros

    Yep, those were great seats that day!

    Probably not a good moment for the Cubbies.

    Way back when, the Cubs would play teams such as high school faculty teams during the off season. I attended a few of these games.

    Can you identify any of these players.
    I did figure out which high school it was at.
    Let's see if anyone here can guess.

    Enjoy the photos!

    So the ones that were bothered by Sosa's antics are more at fault than the person causing the trouble in the first place? Hmmmm. Let me stew on that for a while...The needs of the one outweigh the needs of the many.

    I suspect that some people (teammates, mgmt, etc.) didn't know how to relate to Sosa. Also, similar behavior in a baseball city with less demand for team related news probably wouldn't have even mentioned some of those things.

    People skills were lacking all over the place. Whoops!

    Can't really make out the players at the basketball game. When were these, late 70's?

    The portraits are cool. You take those yourself? Looks like Billy Williams, Bill Buckner, Steve Ontiveros, I think #6 might be Scott Thompson, not sure, Rick Reuschel... wild guesses on the others...Mick Kelleher, Jerry Martin, Mike Vail...

    I don't think Jerry Martin is in any of the portraits. I have one of him, but the negative is overexposed and I can't get it to scan right. Was he # 28 ?

    Not sure about Mike Vail. I have a theory that anytime I can't recognize a player, it might be Mike Vail. <g>

    The basketball pictures weren't the quality I had hoped for. Remember, back then we didn't have the amazing camera gear that is available now.

    The next four pics came out better.

    Here you go, Diana, I said I'd try to get a few pictures up from the All Star Home Run contest at Wrigley in 1990.

    The date is July 9, 1990. This was back when the home run derby was AL vs. NL. The AL team was Cecil Fielder, Mark McGwire, Jose Canseco and Ken Griffey Jr.
    The NL team was Matt Williams, Barry Bonds, Daryl Strawberry , and from the host team, Ryne Sandberg...

    [​IMG]

    Sandberg hit last, and hit 2 or 3 out to beat the AL and take the MVP of the Derby.

    Thanks for sharing the pictures. Feel free to share more as you wish.

    I'd like to see ESPN Classic air those home run derby contests from the past.
