Construction is underway, and it’s not looking good for my fellow ball collectors.

No one’s really sure just how high the new bleachers will rise, or how many balls they’ll rob from the guys who hang out on Waveland and Sheffield Avenues. (You can view more pics and join the discussion about it here. Check out ballhawk.com, too.) I feel bad for them. It’s not a “more for me/less for you” thing. They’ve been doing THEIR thing for decades, and now it’s all about to change.
