CHICAGO (CBS) — The Cubs are 22 games out of first place, with 19 games left in the season, but there may be baseball at Wrigley Field in October.
Now, don’t get your hopes up too much, Cubs fans. No matter how you do the math, the Cubs have no chance of playing in the postseason this year at Wrigley Field.

But Cubs owners the Ricketts family would like to have a movie night at the ballpark on Oct. 1, and show a baseball-themed flick, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
No movie has yet been selected.
Ald. Tom Tunney (44th) has introduced an ordinance in the City Council that would allow the extra nighttime event, the Sun-Times reported.
The Cubs would expect about 3,000 to 4,000 people to show up for the screening, mainly from the surrounding Lakeview neighborhood, the newspaper reported.
