Chicago is a loud city. On any given night, an open window could catch the noise from multiple sirens, car horns, trains and any other number of things that may be going on.

However, Tuesday night the fans at Wrigley Field were so loud they could be heard clearly from at least a mile away.

It’s not a surprise that the fans could be heard, but the clarity is astounding. Those aren’t concert speakers blasting out music, that’s more than 40,000 screaming Cubs fans singing “Go Cubs Go” at the top of their lungs.

It was tough for anyone to ignore the craziness going on at Wrigley Field during the Cubs’ NLDS clinching win.

But those who came north of North Ave. could almost certainly feel the rumble from fans from the first pitch until more than an hour after the final strike.
