Exploring the Past of the Chicago Cubs: A Fox Sports Investigation


Nov 19, 2023

The article discusses a Cubs game that was televised by Fox Sports and features a photo of Wrigley Field sent in by a BCB reader. In the photo, you can see a full house and the first baseman wearing No. 3, with the visiting team confirmed to be the Red Sox.

The Red Sox first visited Wrigley Field in 2005, and it was confirmed that the game in the photo took place in 2012. Further investigation led to the discovery that the game was broadcast on a Saturday, June 16, 2012, where the Red Sox won 4-3.

This game is another piece of Cubs history and provides the opportunity to watch future Cub Jon Lester pitch in Wrigley Field before joining the Cubs as a free agent. Lester pitched for the Red Sox during this game and also hit a homerun from Luis Valbuena that brought the Cubs within one run. However, they ultimately lost the game.
