Wrigley Field speakers broke before batting practice

SHARE Wrigley Field speakers broke before batting practice

When the Cubs went to hit during batting practice, something was different. It was too quiet.

Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo was the first to notice that there wasn’t any music playing during batting practice.

Rizzo thought the Cubs were being punished for being swept by the Philadelphia Phillies over the weekend, but it was actually just some technical difficulty at Wrigley Field.

The Cubs decided to put an old speaker by the batting cage so the players can get psyched for the game.

The Cubs have lost three in a row, and will look to break the losing streak against the Colorado Rockies on Monday.
