The Chicago Cubs are trying to bring back some happiness to their surrounding neighborhood.
On Friday night, they played live organ music at Wrigley Field to try to bring back some normalcy to the baseball area.
The Cubs talked about the subject of organ music during a conference call to season ticket holders on Thursday.
"After receiving feedback from neighbors that they miss the activity and buzz around the ballpark that Cubs baseball provides, we thought this would be a nice thing to do to bring some energy back to the neighborhood. We hope they enjoy the music, and it provides some comfort during a difficult time as we head into the weekend.
"Tonight's organ music will be played by John Benedeck. He is one of the three rotating organists we will have entertaining fans at Wrigley Field when baseball resumes."
The neighborhood has been a little quiet lately. We wanted to help with that. ?? pic.twitter.com/BoCtvUBRf4— Chicago Cubs (@Cubs) May 15, 2020

Seriously wish these seats were filled, but seeing everyone gathered (safely) outside the confines was the next best thing. Wrigley is alive folks.— John Benedeck (@JohnBenedeck) May 16, 2020
