This white t-shirt is from the 80s when the Chicago Cubs were threatening to move out of Wrigley Field and Chicago. Wrigley Field was the last remaining professional ballpark in the MLB not to have stadium lights. During the regular season not having lights didn't mean much other than Cubs home games were exclusively day games. However MLB declared that the Cubs would not be able to have home games during the playoff season in Wrigley Field as long as the stadium didn't have lights and couldn't accommodate night games. On the other hand, locals in the Wrigleyville neighborhood did not want the stadium to add lights. More than just locals, there were baseball purists among Cubs fans who enjoyed that they had a team that still played day baseball and didn't have stadium lights. The Cubs front office declared that they would have to move if they didn't get the lights in Wrigley after MLB told them their home games would be held in St. Louis. The city council conceded to the night games and the lights, with a compromise that the cubs would play a limited number of night games during the season.

This shirt is an Adult Small.
