In 2012, a Cubs game televised by Fox Sports featured a full house at Wrigley Field. The photo sent in by a BCB reader shows the first baseman wearing No. 3, and the visiting team was confirmed to be the Red Sox. The game took place on Saturday, June 16, where the Red Sox won 4-3.

The Red Sox first visited Wrigley Field in 2005, and this game is another piece of Cubs history. It also provided the opportunity to watch future Cub Jon Lester pitch in Wrigley Field before joining the Cubs as a free agent. Lester pitched for the Red Sox during this game and a homerun from Luis Valbuena brought the Cubs within one run, but they ultimately lost the game.
