Play ball!

If you listened to sports radio this morning, you know the Cubby Bear was packed with drunks by 8 a.m. Baseball has returned to Wrigleyville!

You should recognize the Friendly Confines in the video above, even if the suits in the stands seem a little out of place. (What, mock jerseys and tube tops weren’t always the official uniforms of North Siders?)

The footage, part of the Chicago Film Archives’ Glick-Berolzheimer Collection, dates back to 1937, when the Cubbies went 93-61 and missed a trip to the World Series by just three games.
