In 2012, the Red Sox made their return to Wrigley Field for a game that was televised by Fox Sports. A photo sent in by a BCB reader shows a packed house and the first baseman wearing No. 3, with the visiting team confirmed to be the Red Sox.
The Red Sox had previously visited Wrigley Field in 2005, and this game marked another significant moment in Cubs history. The game took place on a Saturday, June 16, 2012, and saw the Red Sox win 4-3.
One of the highlights of the game was future Cub Jon Lester pitching for the Red Sox. Lester would eventually join the Cubs as a free agent after his contract expired. Additionally, a homerun from Luis Valbuena brought the Cubs within one run of tying the game, but they ultimately fell short.
Overall, this game provided fans with an opportunity to witness Lester pitch at Wrigley Field before he became a member of the Cubs. It also added another piece to the storied history of Wrigley Field and the Cubs franchise.
