A father-son day at the ballpark

In addition to writing this blog/website, I write a weekly column for NWI Parent called "Father Knows Nothing." This week I wrote a story that may interest you. It's about my latest father-son day at Wrigley Field. You can read it here.

John Dillinger

John Herbert Dillinger was born on this day in 1902.

Sure, he was a notorious bank robber, but he was also something else: A fan of the Chicago Cubs.

He attended his last Cubs game just a few weeks before he was gunned down outside the Biograph Theater; exactly one month after his 32nd birthday.

(The movie about his life, starring Johnny Depp, opens on July 1)
