John Ely will take the mound at Wrigley Field at 1:20 pm CT (CSN)

and his dad is standing by his team:

… Ely is from Harvey, Ill., a community about 20 miles from the North Side. And he is bringing his 3-1 record and stupefying control home.

But his proud dad won’t make the short drive. Being wheelchair-bound is part of the reason, given old Wrigley Field’s access issues. A small part. The bulk of it is that Mr. Ely is a fan of the city’s other team.

“It’s part mobility issues, because Wrigley isn’t wheelchair-friendly,” said the 24-year-old righty, “and partly because he’s a die-hard White Sox fan and he doesn’t come here.”
