Cubs hold friendly hitting competition with some celebrity appearances
The Cubs had a scheduled off day on Monday after the series against the Cardinals was postponed. So, the team decided to have a little bit of light-hearted fun before hitting the road to take on the Cleveland Indians.
Players split into teams and had what Cubs manager David Ross called “target practice” with a hitting competition at Wrigley Field.
There were cardboard cutouts of famous Chicagoans and Chicago athletes scattered throughout the outfield. Some of the celebrities included Bill Murray, Eddie Vedder, Michael Jordan and former Cub Rick Sutcliffe.
“It was fun,” Ross said. “Team ‘No Leg Day’ won. That was Juan Cabrera’s team. So it was fun.”
