Gates will open as scheduled for Friday afternoon’s Chicago Cubs game against Pittsburgh at Wrigley Field after a bomb threat was called in to the ballpark.

The threat was made by phone about 10:15 a.m., according to Chicago Police.

Officers and K-9 units responded to the park to investigate, police said. No threat was found; no injuries were reported; and the park was not evacuated.

“Before our game at Wrigley Field this afternoon, we were notified of a potential bomb threat,” a Chicago Cubs spokesman said in a statement.

“After a thorough search by law enforcement, no evidence was found to suggest this threat was credible. Gates will open at 11:20 a.m. as planned.”
