Question about Wrigley

I'm heading to my first major league baseball game at Wrigley on July 4th.

I'm sitting in the Terrace, wherever that is.

So, for anyone who has been to Wrigley-

Do I need my glove?

Unless you are under the age of 12, you should not be bringing a glove to baseball games. Of course, the one time I sat in the bleachers at Wrigley, it seems like this 'rule' was not in effect.

I agree with this. I could see possibly the exception of being at the homerun derby though.

My first (and only) game at Wrigley was in the second row directly behind home plate. Breathtaking stadium.

Not only should you bring your glove, but you should wear your little league uniform too.

And maybe they will let you walk around the perimeter of the field before game-time, too.

Haha, I'm gonna get a whole bunch more balls than the rest of you without gloves.

Hmm... that doesn't sound right, but you know what I mean.

Terrace doesn't tell me much. Tell me what section you are in and I can give real advice
