While it was the Chicago Clubs who registered a win 6-3 win over Atlanta Braves in the Major League Baseball game on Saturday, fans at the Wrigley Field were clearly having a great time and even made a “beer snake” from the cups. The same was caught on cameras and several videos of the same have surfaced on social media.
For the unversed, “beer cup” or “snake cup” is the stacking of plastic beer cups to form a “snake” like structure and is usually in sporting events that are staged over a few hours. One of these snakes was formed by fans during the abovementioned baseball game.

As far as the sporting action is concerned, it was a game to remember for Chicago as they won putting their 10-game losing streak behind them. At the same time, Chicago’s victory meant that the Braves’ 14-game winning record came to an end.
In what was the first face-off between Contreras brothers, it was Wilson who would have the bragging rights as he had three hits and stole a base in this game against his younger brother William.
“That’s 1-0,” Wilson Contreras said.
“I didn’t want to get beat by my younger brother. I’m pretty sure he was thinking the same thing. We’re professionals. We love our teams,” he stated.
“From my first at-bat, when I gave him a hug, I was proud,” Willson Contreras said. “Even before the game, I was trying to keep myself together,” he said.
Meanwhile, Wilson’s brother William recalled a jokey moment from the game.
“During his last at-bat, he came up and he was looking at me and he said, ‘What are you looking at?’ I looked right back and said, ‘What are you looking at?’ That was probably the only kind of jokey moment of the day,” William said.
