PHOTOS: Cubs-Reds, White Sox-Blue Jays playing in a fog
The Cubs and Reds started Monday night's game in a fog. Here's the photographic evidence.
Here are some "action" shots from Monday night's Cubs-Reds game in venerable Wrigley Field (as usual, click on the photos for full-size versions):

seriously, how many players can you actually see? twitter.com/ctrent/status/…— ctrent (@ctrent) June 11, 2013
In viewing the game on TV, there have been several fly balls to the outfield where I couldn't tell if the outfielder caught the ball or not. The players seem to be making due OK, though, as there's only been one drop through the first two innings.
And, yes, with the game being in Chicago, this definitely brings back memories of The Fog Bowl between the Bears and Eagles in the 1988 NFL playoffs.
UPDATE: Not surprisingly, the fog has arrived on the south side now for the Blue Jays-White Sox game:
