Baseball Game in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off Positively Identified

Good news for Ferris Bueller completists: The exact Cubs game that Ferris and Cameron attended on their infamous day off has been definitively identified, thanks to the intrepid detective work of a Baseball Prospectus writer. The game took place on June 5, 1985, Cubs vs. Braves, with the Braves winning 4–2, but not before Claudell Washington hit a foul ball in the eleventh inning straight to Cameron. To file under Jeopardy questions of tomorrow. [Baseball Prospectus via Movieline]
