Bochy convinced Wrigley is special
CHICAGO -- Count Bruce Bochy among the many who regard Wrigley Field as a baseball shrine.

"It's like you go back in time every time you come here," the Giants manager said on Tuesday as he surveyed the sun-drenched Friendly Confines. "It's nice to have a ballpark that has so much history and that constant that few ballparks have."

Bochy takes nothing for granted about Wrigley. He observed that the visiting team walks through the same tunnel to the field that Babe Ruth once did. From a personal standpoint, Bochy recalled hitting his second career home run here while playing for the Houston Astros on Sept. 1, 1978.

Echoing the widespread appreciation for Wrigley's intimacy, Bochy added, "It's not a stadium. It's a ballpark."
