BEARS GROWL AT BACK-TO-BACK GAMES AT SOLDIER FIELD
Published October 11, 1994
Bears President Mike McCaskey on Sunday voiced his displeasure with the Soldier Field turf and accused the Chicago Park District of violating the Bears' lease. On Saturday, Jackson State played Alabama State at Soldier Field in a downpour. Following the game, the field was torn up and needed to be resodded. According to the terms of the Bears' lease, no event can take place at Soldier Field less than 24 hours before a Bears game. McCaskey: "We just wish the Park District would live up to its word" (Terry Armour, CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 10/10). The Park District's Director of Lakefront Services Bridget Reidy argued that Sunday's field was "dry, playable and very level." Reidy said that the new resodding should begin later this week and the anticipated $20-30,000 cost will be billed to promoters of Saturday's game (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 10/11).
