Wrigley Field:

    The Chicago Cubs were one of many professional sports leagues to pay tribute to the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The United States is in mourning following the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday. Ginsburg, who held a seat on the United States Supreme Court for over 27 years, passed away due to complications from metastatic pancreatic cancer. She was 87 years old. Ginsburg’s work resonated through generations of individuals, especially for her advocacy for gender equality and civil rights.  That is why the tributes to the American icon poured in throughout our social media feeds these past 24 hours, even in the sports world. On Saturday, the Chicago Cubs honored the legacy of Ginsburg by having...

    The Chicago Cubs announced that they have joined forces with the Draftkings company, which specializes in sports betting and daily fantasy, in a multi-year agreement that will bring the first sports betting center of its kind to Wrigley Field. The venue promises to have the best sports betting experience for fans in the entire state. In addition, people who live in the Wrigleyville area will be able to access it through the internet.
    The Chicago Cubs have forged a new partnership with DraftKings that will eventually lead to a sportsbook being placed inside Wrigley Field, TMZ Sports reported on Thursday. While allowing in-person wagering at a baseball stadium was once thought to be inconceivable, times have changed and the state of Illinois has taken steps to allow such endeavors. The Cubs announced the new partnership and said that the ability for fans to place bets will either be inside the ball park, or somewhere very close by. The team said the intent was absolutely so that people who were going to a match-up during the day, could stop off and place a bet on who would win, who would knock in the first...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — A retired Chicago doctor and diehard Cubs pounded the pavement Sunday to raise awareness for patient and caregiver safety. As the Cubs prepared to take on the White Sox, Dr. Dave Mayer began his trek at 8 a.m. at Guaranteed Rate Field, and arrived at Wrigley Field about three hours later. The ballparks are about eight miles apart. Mayer is walking across the U.S., visiting all 30 Major League Baseball stadiums. Since February, he has walked almost 200 straight days, more than 1,300 miles, and just under 3 million steps. He said he is having fun, but his cause is serious. “People don’t realize that behind cancer and heart disease, more people die from preventable errors, and...
    Chicago Cubs star Kris Bryant really knows Cubs fans so well he was able to deliver this spot-on impression of the things Cubs fans say. With no fans in the stands, life this season for the Chicago Cubs players have surely felt quite different in the middle of the shortened 60-game Major League Baseball campaign. For first baseman Kris Bryant, you can tell he misses the passion of the Chicago faithful screaming their heads off. At the same time, Bryant has also gotten to know Cubs fans everywhere pretty well and has a pretty strong idea of what they’d be saying this summer if they were still keeping Wrigley Field packed like normal. In a recent interview with Red Bull,...
    We’ve entered into an alternate dimension: The Cardinals are the home team at Wrigley Field The St. Louis Cardinals missed so many baseball games thanks to a COVID-19 outbreak in their clubhouse that they now have to play home games away from their friendly confines of Busch Stadium. With yet another doubleheader on their slate on Monday, the Cards had a rare home-away split with the Chicago Cubs. Thankfully, no one had to make the near five-hour drive from St. Louis to Wrigleyville. For the first time since 1898, the Cardinals were the home team for a game in Chicago. For scheduling reasons, the Cubs hit first in their own empty stadium, proving once and for all how weird baseball...
    CHICAGO (AP) — Standing on a corner on Waveland Avenue, Moe Mullins has seen them come and go. Sosa and McGwire. The Sandberg Game. Pujols. Young and old men alike. Summers full of blue skies, and a neighborhood changed forever. “You know, life is a big circle,” Mullins says. Like a baseball. While Major League Baseball is beginning this season without fans in its stadiums, the famed ballhawks of Wrigley Field remain at their post amid the coronavirus pandemic. The banter is free and easy, like a street-side barbershop full of old friends, and pretty much everyone is fair game. It’s the same as it has been for decades, only with protective masks and — when there isn’t a ball...

    CHICAGO (AP) — Bottom of the first, two out. Willson Contreras lines an RBI single against Corbin Burnes to give the Chicago Cubs an early lead over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday. The crowd cheers and, just to be clear, it’s not one of those piped-in roars. Fans just beyond the ivy at Wrigley Field, up on the rooftops, are letting loose. Though the Cubs would go on to get pounded 8-3, just seeing a game in person from high and far was a welcome diversion for Dr. Dave Barounis. While major league ballparks are off limits to the general public, Wrigley Field is one of the few spots where they can look in on the action. “It feels really...
    Chicago Cubs fans celebrate their 4-1 win over the New York Mets Photo by Rich Schultz/Getty Images) With the MLB regular season officially starting, the Cubs–Brewers broadcast on FOX is doing whatever it takes to emulate what a real baseball game would feel like. Because of the fact that MLB games in the 2020 season will be played without fans, everyone involved will have to make their proper adjustments to the new reality, or in this case, virtual reality. As the Cubs and Brewers square off for their opening series in 2020, FOX’s broadcast team is experimenting with having its own version of fans in the stands, even if they are not real.

    CHICAGO — Friday is the long-delayed Opening Day for the White Sox and Cubs — but baseball in Bridgeport and Wrigleyville will look different, very different this year. The teams’ original opening days in the spring were postponed amid the coronavirus pandemic. The MLB has returned with a shortened season, though, and Chicago’s teams will play games this weekend. Neither Guaranteed Rate Field nor Wrigley Field will allow fans at the parks for now due to the pandemic — though the Sox have given fans the options to buy a cardboard cutout to sit in the stands for them, and the Cubs are allowing people to watch from the Sheffield and Waveland rooftops. The Cubs could also have weekend night...

    EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) — Northwestern’s game against Wisconsin scheduled for Nov. 7 at Wrigley Field in Chicago is being moved to Ryan Field because of uncertainties due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Northwestern announced the decision Wednesday after consulting with the Chicago Cubs, state and local authorities and the Big Ten Conference. Athletic director Jim Phillips cited the possibility of a limited crowd at the famed ballpark even if fans were allowed. He called it “a disappointing conclusion to reach” and said the Wildcats hope to play there again “with a packed house.” In 2010, Northwestern played Illinois in the first college football game at Wrigley Field since 1938. The Wildcats have since played baseball and lacrosse games there. “We look...
