Wrigley Field

The Chicago Cubs released a video of Wrigley Field Friday that is a must-see treat not just for Cubs fans, but all baseball fans.

In fact, the four-minute video, filmed using a drone, is so visually striking and well-produced that almost anyone would enjoy it.

The video takes fans everywhere from Wrigleyville outside the stadium to tunnels, concourses, the locker room, scoreboard area … almost everywhere. The Cubs dedicated the fan tribute video, “To the best fans in baseball, You make Wrigley Field the Friendly Confines.”

The video wowed baseball fans. Even legendary Cubs pitcher Fergie Jenkins checked in with a tweet, noting, “No feeling like it…..anywhere. Wrigley Field filled with @Cubs fans.”

Perhaps Mario Tirabassi best described the video.

“I’m no Cubs fan, but this is objectively awesome,” he tweeted.

Wrigley Field opened in 1914, not for the Cubs, but as the home of the Chicago Whales of the Federal League. When the Whales folded a year later, the Cubs moved into the friendly confines in 1916. And 100 years later, the Cubs finally celebrated the stadium’s first world championship, winning the 2016 World Series. The club has fallen on hard times the past couple of seasons, entering the day 71-86. But this amazing video should get fans hyped for next season.
