Chicago Cubs Fans Return to Wrigley Field for Opening Day

The Chicago Cubs welcomed just over 10,000 fans to Wrigley Field on Thursday, April 1, for their opening-day game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Ticket entries were timed, everyone was told to wear a mask, and attendance was limited to just 25 percent of the park’s 41,000-seat capacity, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Video by the Chicago Police Department shows groups of fans making their way to Wrigley Field, before a number cheer for the camera inside the stadium.
