Joe Maddon Thinks AC/DC Concert Might Have Messed Up Wrigley Field Infield

Joe Maddon has said he likes all kinds of music, but that list might not include rock and roll greats AC/DC — at least, not anymore.

The Chicago Cubs manager is a little concerned about the Wrigley Field infield, and he thinks the legendary rock group might have played a role. Well, maybe not the band themselves, exactly, but Maddon is blaming a recent Wrigley concert for wreaking havoc on the infield.

“Since the AC/DC concert, we?ve had a little bit of trouble,” Maddon told reporters, per the Chicago Tribune. “I don?t know if they were out there taking ground balls before the game, or if they had 9-inch heels or spike …

“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 (Castro) has done a nice job at second base. I don?t want anyone blaming him on that error. It was a weird hop.”

Castro tends to agree, though his issue is actually with the outfield grass — where the majority of concert-goers and the stage stood.

“Some places are long, some are short,” Castro said, per the Tribune. “It?s not like it used to look.”

The AC/DC show was on Sept. 15, and the Cubs have won three of their four home games since then, so apparently it’s not a huge deal.
