Captain Cubbo

My Co-Worker Roberto is a die-hard Chicago Cubs fan. Growing up, he lived across the street from Wrigley Field on Sheffield Avenue. About four years ago, he decided to create a character based on The Cubs when taking his kids to Comic-Con. That was the genesis of what became his alter ego: Captain Cubbo. Since then, he’s appeared at many games dressed in character, much to the delight of fans. He’s even been well received at a St. Louis Cardinals game! Captain Cubbo has been spotted by TV cameras and appears frequently on La Vida Baseball podcasts.

I’ve been a Chicago Cubs fan since I was nine years old when my mother took me to my first game. Although I would not follow baseball for many years, The 2015 season brought me back to enjoying baseball and the 2016 World Series win just topped that. I only wish my mother would’ve been around to see that happen. This mural is on 16th Street west of Halsted .
