Joe Maddon Says AC/DC Screwed Up Wrigley Field

AC/DC held a concert at Wrigley Field on Sept. 15, and they apparently shredded the whole field with their smoking hot riffs. At least that’s what Cubs manager Joe Maddon thinks.

The Cubs made three errors in yesterday’s win over the Brewers, and Maddon placed the blame with AC/DC. From the Chicago Tribune:

“They totally messed up the infield, and it has nothing to do with the groundskeepers. I’ve seen a bad hop at third, and a bad hop at second. I didn’t see one bad hop all year. We just got to get it ironed out because I think Starlin has done a nice job at second base. I don’t want anyone blaming him on that error. It was a weird hop.”


The Cubs’ grounds crew has a big task ahead of it, because getting an infield back into shape on the fly is no small task. It’s certainly not something that can be done dirt cheap.
