The Chicago Cubs will make their home debut on Monday afternoon, and to get fans fired up for their first game at Wrigley Field, the team has released a hype video ahead of the game.

The Cubs, who are off to a rough start this season, have stepped up their game on the video front, and this one is no exception:

The video features epic highlights from some of the team’s best players of all time (yes, including Sammy Sosa), and also features the current crop of Cubs in action, as Willson Contreras, Kris Bryant, and Anthony Rizzo swing for the fences and get fans ready for the regular season.

First pitch between the Cubs and Pirates is set for 1:20 p.m., and Jon Lester will throw that pitch as he faces off against Jameson Taillon.
