25 photos/videos of Blue Jays fans invading Wrigley Field in large numbers

It had been a long time since the Blue Jays had visited Wrigley Field.

The Jays, an American League team, don’t play Chicago’s National League team very often. As such, Friday was their first visit to the 101-year-old ballpark since 2005.

Blue Jays fans come from all over Canada, and they travel well, as we’ve seen in recent years at road games in Seattle. So you know they weren’t going to let this opportunity pass them by. A weekend series against the Cubs, the reigning World Series champions, at Wrigley Field?

And a day game, no less?

They came prepared, in large numbers, and they were loud.

I mean, they were ready at breakfast.

Though their team lost the game 7-4, Blue Jays fans did get a thrill in the eighth inning when Toronto scored three runs to narrow the score to 5-4.

Lots of jays fans at Wrigley

Expect an equally enthusiastic Blue Jays fanbase at Wrigley again on Saturday, when they take on Chicago in Game 2 of their three-game series.
