Tracey Ahart and his 15-year-old daughter, Kelli Ahart, enjoyed a trip to Chicago, Ill., Aug 2-7 to see an Aug. 4 baseball game at Wrigley Field. "I would encourage all baseball lovers to make this trip," said Tracey. "There is no other place like it for baseball and I have been to many ball parks across the country." The game made national news for a violent storm that came through in the fifth inning. The thunderstorm stopped the game but the tornado sirens were sounded after one was spotted nearby. Spectators were herded into the concourse below and kept there for safety. Kelli, whose 15th birthday was the next day, suffered a severe asthma attack due to the close proximity of all the people and all the excitement. The Aharts rushed across the street to a neighborhood firehouse for medical treatment. She ended up in the Emergency Room until 11:30 p.m. that night. They took a cab back to their car parked at Union Station in downtown Chicago.
