This video is quite possibly the best depiction of how special the game of baseball has been throughout history. Vin Scully recites the “Field of Dreams” speech, while some of baseball’s greatest memories are shown the background. My words can’t do this video justice, so please enjoy this video in the link below. Warning You may get goosebumps.
As many of you already know, Jake Arrieta threw his second career no-hitter last night. It is always bittersweet when a pitcher throws a gem on the road, since the home fans aren’t there to celebrate with their team. Well, think again. One Chicago Cubs’ fan decided to rush the field and join the celebration on Thursday night. This fan joined the Cubs’ circle, around Arrieta, as they jumped up and down in excitement. The fan then made his way to the middle of the circle where he tried to grab Arrieta’s hat. It wasn’t long before part of the stadium’s security escorted him off the field.
Throughout the years, the Chicago Cubs have struggled with curses…. the goat, Steve Bartman, could this turn into another curse? If Arrieta somehow gets hurt or starts to pitch terrible, I would be a little worried Cubs fans, because this could be the curse of the no-hitter fan celebration. I’m not sure the Cubs organization can handle another curse, so lets hope the Cubs continue to dominate in 2016. They currently have the best record in Major League Baseball and should have a great chance to make a run at their first World Series title since 1908.
