See Schlensky v. Wrigley.

All day games and then the getaway game is 8:00??!! (EST).

I saw the tweets of the players….getting in at 6:00 AM??!!

I got into Chicago from Hawaii on a redeye one time at that hour when I was 32. It was not a fun day! And I didn’t have to play a game that night. Plus, AJ wasn’t sent ahead.

Uh Oh!
