The City of Chicago is expecting over 120,000 protestors to descend on Wrigley Field this weekend in their biggest movement yet to try and end shitty baseball on both the North and South Sides of this great city.
Dozens of packed buses started to make their way into town Wednesday night; from Tinley Park to Evanston, Kankakee to Kenilworth, activists are geared up to let the leaders of these two teams know what they want.
“Someone needs to be held responsible for these big contracts and bad investments!” said Larry Sullinger from Palos Hills.
Another protester, Mike Smalls, came all the way from the Quad Cities to voice his opinion about Chicago’s farming.
“We used to have such great farm systems back in the day, now we’re ranked last in the league!” he exclaimed. “What happened? I want answers!”
Chicago Police chief Garry McCarthy said that his staff will be taking security very seriously.
“Clark Street from Belmont to Irving Park will be closed off from 7AM Friday thru 10PM Sunday. With at least a dozen washed up 80’s actors and a retired mayor all expected to be in attendance, we can’t be taking any chances.”
