The month of May is here, and that usually means bustling streets on the North Side of Chicago as fans head to Wrigley Field to cheer on the Chicago Cubs. That is obviously not the case in 2020.
Baseball fans are just waiting for news about when games will be played, and as of right now, it is clear that fans will likely not be in attendance at any games in a potential 2020 season. That is an absolute bummer, and the sight of an abandoned Wrigley Field on Sunday morning, courtesy of reddit user jrsbenchez, only makes the reality set in even more.
This sight is honestly a bit spooky. The stadium being empty is one thing. The entire surrounding area being a ghost town in one of America's biggest cities almost seems like something out of a movie.
A shot like this would have been impossible to get before the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, it is the norm.
Baseball will be back at Wrigley one day. All we can do now is focus on helping out one another so we can all gather again in our favorite places to eat a hot dog and take in a baseball game.
