Count Lance Berkman among those who are not impressed with Wrigley Field.The Texas Rangers will be making their first trip to the "Friendly Confines" since 2002 -- and only the team's second visit ever. Berkman, however, has visited Chicago numerous times to play the Cubs when he was with the Houston Astros.
His gloomy outlook, however, isn't spoiling the experience for his Rangers teammates."I want to compare it to Fenway," second baseman Ian Kinsler told the Dallas Morning News. "I love playing at Fenway. The history is part of that, but I think it's the atmosphere that really makes those places special. There is a great atmosphere. I've heard about all the other things, like that there are no cages, no weight rooms and that the walk to the field isn't that pleasant. But I'm excited. I don't know if the weather will change anything." Pitcher Derek Holland, who will start Tuesday's game, will also be playing at Wrigley Field for the first time -- is also excited to visit the ballpark. Holland is known for his Harry Caray impressions and also has a dog named Wrigley. "I want to pitch there really bad," Holland told the Star-Telegram. "It's Wrigley. It's an historic park. You don't have parks like that anymore."
