Cubs Hoping For Baseball Movie Night At Wrigley

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.

    One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest has a famous Baseball Scene. Though their choice will likely be safe and pre-digested. Like the ballclub.

    how about a movie about Jim Jones and all the idiots who follow a nutcase loser? wouldn’t that be more fitting to cubs fans. following a losing team year after year with no hope of a future? Cancer will be cured before the cubs win a world series.
