Without baseball in full swing, fans miss the everyday things from their ballpark, here are some things Chicago Cubs fans are missing from Wrigley Field.
From the beautiful marquee to the sun glaring down on you in the left-field bleachers, there are so many things that make Wrigley Field special. As we head into July when the Chicago Cubs are usually a part of our everyday lives, whether that be on WGN or from the seats of Wrigley, there are plenty of things we’re missing this year.
Getting to the game, some drive from the suburbs, others hop on the red line, and some walk down the block to the “Friendly Confines.” This year we miss that magical feeling when Wrigley comes into your eyesight.

We miss the fantastic neighborhood of Wrigleyville and all the beautiful people that are there every single gameday. Fans also miss the smiles of some fans whom it may be their first time at Wrigley. You may even miss the guys selling peanuts on the corners.
With the season start date in this weird season being right around the corner, we now know Wrigley Field will be implementing artificial noise. Will they throw in a recorded “Go Cubs Go” if the Cubbies win at home? Hopefully, that W flag will still be visible from the streets of Wrigleyville, though. This will change the home vs. away records as well due to there being no fans.
The Marquee, Harry Carry, Billy Williams, Ernie Banks, and Ron Santo are all waiting for the best fans in baseball to show up this year. The moment I miss the most this season is the walk into Wrigley Field, once you make it out and see the fantastic sight of Wrigley.
Fans will miss out on plenty of hot dogs (without ketchup) and beer snakes in the bleachers, and even flying the W while singing “Go Cubs Go” with more than 40,000 other Cubs fans.
