Chicago Cubs Ground Crew Struggles with Tarp, Gets Booed (Video)

| by Michael Allen

The Chicago Cubs have been the butt of jokes for years, but tonight their grounds crew got the same treatment at Wrigley Field.

During the bottom of the fifth inning between the Cubs and the San Francisco Giants, rain started falling heavily and the grounds crew brought out a giant tarp to place on the infield.

However, they had some problems positioning it per a video (below) posted by the Chicago Sun-Times.

That's when the fans start booing the grounds crew and yelling, "Pull! Pull!" notes

In a second video (below) posted by the Chicago Sun-Times, the grounds crew finally gets the tarp over the infield and the crowd congratulates them by cheering, "USA! USA!"
