Watch: Jake Arrieta Receives Standing Ovation from Wrigley Field Faithful
Jake Arrieta made his on-field return to Wrigley Field Monday night, and Cubs fans responded with the only appropriate reaction: a standing ovation. Jake will go down as a Chicago Cubs legend for his time as a Cub, and it was a wonderful moment to see him tip his helmet to the fans at Wrigley.

Just for some more emotional fun, here is the tribute video we made for Jake when he ultimately signed with the Phillies two offseasons ago.
As he returns to the Wrigley Field mound tonight for the first time, wanted to re-share our farewell/tribute vid to Jake Arrieta.
Forever a Chicago Cubs great and World Series Champion. Thank you @JArrieta34, and welcome back. pic.twitter.com/sG5FrUQp2T
