Eastern Iowans make their way to Wrigley for postseason baseball

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (KWWL) -

Though the Cubs dropped game 2 of the National League Championship Series 1-0 to the Los Angeles Dodgers, more than 42,000 people were on hand to watch that game.

Among those, a group of Eastern Iowans, headed on a bus from Dubuque as part of a midwestbustrips.com trip.

Katie Cotz and Zach Howe spent time exploring Wrigleyville before the game started.

"It's been 108 years since they won. The buzz around this place, everybody around this place is excited for baseball, especially postseason baseball," Howe said.

And while Wrigley Field is nothing new to a lot of Eastern Iowans, the atmosphere is so unique when the playoffs come around.

Just take it from long time vendor Ed Landesman.

"It's something else, it's exuberating, you feel the vibe around the crowds, cause I've been all around the stadium. It's like a madhouse, the fans just love it, I just love it," he said.

Many of these fans excited that the bus trip means they don't have to worry about getting in or out of a busy north side of Chicago, all while getting to enjoy a baseball game in October.

"Any time you come to Wrigley, it's just an awesome atmosphere. It's obviously heightened up with the NLCS being here, fans everywhere. Even got a trip out of Dubuque, it's a great experience, even though it's a Sunday," said Mike Moloney, a Cubs fan from Peosta.

If the Cubs do indeed make the World Series, you can be there too.  For details, visit www.midwestbustrips.com.
