Chicago Cubs

Ah, Cubs production does it again.

For the second episode of their “Cubs 162” series, we get to go behind-the-scenes with every single part of the Chicago Cubs organization. From roadies to scouts to coaches and players, it’s all worth your time.

The video begins with the guys boxing things up in Chicago to bring to Arizona for Spring Training (Part I), before turning to Willson Contreras and his *super* early daily starts in Mesa and general commitment to self-improvement. After that, we get taken us into Manager David Ross’ staff room, where they discuss the camera-locations for batting practice, scouting plans for the day/week, and a lot more – that was easily my favorite part of the entire video.

But the highlight of the show – undoubtedly – is the photo day hijinks between Anthony Rizzo and Jon Lester. As our friend Corey Freedman points out on Twitter, this gif will forever be a memorable one:

So sit back and airplay/cast this 23-min video spectacular to your big screen. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
