What do you mean SO FEW?

They are evil and the devil and made of all things bad in life.

The most important bus system in the city for me goes past their stadium. It’s a NIGHTMARE during baseball season, but night games are the WORST.

However, I would suspect it has to do with their popularity and the ability to make more money on afternoon games. Just my suspicion though.

I thought it was tradition, but I’m not really sure.

I still remember the first night game, in August 1988. I was 8.

Because baby bears need their beauty sleep?

Because sucking at night is much harder than sucking during the day.

I believe it’s got to do with a city ordinace for Wrigleyville. The bar crowd is hellish, and I think they don’t want people drunkenly stumbling around a supposed ‘historical district’.

Oh! I think @Drawkward has it in a way. At night, everyone leaves and basically goes straight home I think. I’ve been stuck in the directly after game traffic then and was in a perfect standstill for an hour.

During the afternoon, people mill about more, getting drunk or leaving early or whatever. So the traffic isn’t quite so bad. It takes about 20 minutes to get past the stadium, but the bus isn’t literally just sitting for an hour.
