The White Sox swept the Cubs, winning 4-3 on Wednesday night and during the game fans got even more pissed off at Wrigley Field. In the bottom of the sixth inning, Willson Contreras drove a ball deep to center field off Reynaldo Lopez. Luis Robert raced back and made the catch before crashing straight into the wall.
Normally there’s ivy, but that hasn’t come in yet, leaving little to no padding for the bricks and boy did White Sox fans make sure to let everyone know how much they hated it.

Wrigley is such a trash field.

Wrigley is such a dumb place. It has a basket around the outfield and the wall is made of solid brick.

Someone plz explain me this, why is Wrigley Field allowed to have an uncovered brick wall covering the outfield? Time to get some padding and join the century. Another L for the Cubs

Why the fuck are bricks in the outfield walls still allowed at wrigley?! Do we not care about player safety??!! Fucking joke of a field!! @wrigley.

I have so much distaste for Wrigley. “The Ivy” is dumb and having a brick wall in the outfield is just dangerous.

Fuck Wrigley. The fuck is a brick wall doing in a sports field

Okay, incredible catch by Robert, but it’s a great reminder that there’s no reason a brick wall should be allowed as a fence in 2022.

There’s plenty more of that.
Luckily for White Sox fans and Robert, he got up and stayed in the game, singling hard to left field in the eighth inning. Probably woke up with a bruise though.
So, should the Cubs get rid of the brick wall or are White Sox fans being too sensitive because one of their players ran into it?
That and more on this week’s Pinwheels and Ivy Podcast.
