Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

Every spring, Chicagoans eagerly anticipate baseball season to fly the W, cheer on the good guys in black, and revel in the rivalry.

Opening Day at Home

While we can’t head out to the ballpark, fans can relive the Cubs’ 2016 World Series win and the White Sox’s Mark Buehrle pitching a perfect game in 2009 thanks to MLB’s #OpeningDayatHome. See the lineup.
