Cubs fans were still able to boo the heck out of Ryan Braun from the rooftops across from Wrigley Field
Despite Major League Baseball officially returning to our lives this week, things don’t feel quite the same. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the games are being played with no fans in the stands, which takes away from the usual heckling that makes the sport so great.
Hold the phone, though. For Chicago Cubs fans, the rooftops across the street from Wrigley Field have actually opened at limited capacity. So, as you might have guessed, fans who were up on the roof didn’t waste any time in giving it to Brewers players, with one star in particular getting plenty of hate.
Cubs fans shouted from the rooftops to let Ryan Braun know how much they dislike him
In hilarious fashion, new Cubs skipper David Ross revealed he was able to hear some of the boos come in for Ryan Braun. It’s no secret Chicago fans have been ruthless against the Brewers slugger, especially after he admitted to taking performing enhancing drugs during his 2011 NL MVP campaign.
As soon as that news was made public, Cubs fans everywhere lost plenty of respect for the Milwaukee player, with supporters taking every chance they can get to rip him whenever the Brewers come to town. Despite the empty seats inside Wrigley Field for the 2020 season, that’s clearly not going to stop people in Chicago from letting Braun know just how much they dislike him.
To make things worse for Braun, the Cubs dominated the Brewers on Friday night and left Wrigley with a 3-0 win. Kyle Hendricks was unreal in the victory, tossing a three-hit shutout. Braun went 0-for-3 on the evening. Add the boo birds that were coming in and it’s easy to see why he’ll want to quickly forget the season-opener.
