Chicago Baseball Season Starting Hot

Catering By Michaels

Whether you’re a Cubs fan or a White Sox fan, there’s no getting around that giddy feeling of the Major League Baseball season opening in Chicago. The first recorded game in Chicago was played in August 1851—to give you some perspective on how deep you have to dig to find the sport’s roots in the Windy City.

Much to the chagrin of New York Yankee standout Derek Jeter, now the owner of the Miami Marlins, the Cubs started the season hitting it out of the park—quite literally.

The Cub’s leadoff batter and center fielder Ian Happ took a swing at the first pitch of the season, a middle-middle fastball from the Marlins’ Jose Urena. Happ sent the ball over the right-field fence before jogging in the first of eight runs to leave the Cubs on top, 8-4.

It’s simply hard to think of a better way for the Cubbies to start the season.

The Sox rolled up their sleeves and got to work late last month, after having been pummeled in Spring training by the Kansas City Royals. Thankfully, when it counts, the Southsiders were able to walk away with back-to-back wins against the Royals, 14-7 and 4-3.

Even if the Cubs or Sox didn’t manage to put their best foot forward at the beginning of the season, there’s no doubt that every true fan in the city would do everything in their power to be at the first home game—rain, snow, or shine.

We don’t like to take sides when Chicago has not one but TWO amazing professional baseball teams, but it only seems fair to cheer on the Chicago Cubs as they attempt to break their 100+ year dry spell of World Series wins.

Chicagoans all around the city and across the globe are collectively biting their nails and hoping that this year is FINALLY the year. As of this writing, the Chicago Cubs still have to defeat the LA Dodgers before they even have the chance to compete for the title of World Series champions. Fox Sports shares the playoffs and World Series schedule if you need to keep up with game dates and times!

As we wait around and see what happens for the Chicago Cubs in 2016, it can be fun to shift the focus slightly from the intense competition, to ballpark food and the weird Chicago Cubs goat curse.
