the littlest ball hawk
I spent some time along Waveland Avenue just outside Wrigley Field’s left field wall before tonight’s Cubs’ game.
That place at that time is the home of the Ball Hawks, the fans who wait for batting practice home runs before each home game at the Friendly Confines.
I almost paid the price for this photo as seconds after I took it, a line drive whizzed just past my head.
I was counting on the reaction on the faces of the fans to give me some warning but I was wrong.
Anyways, here is 8-year-old Trevor Berggrenn, who almost became my final photo subject.
