There will also be a locker room sale where Fan’s will have the opportunity to purchase authentic Cubs memorabilia including uniforms, game-used bats and balls as well as bases from Wrigley Field.
Kid’s can practice their swing with wiffleballs on a mini baseball diamond while pitching instructors and batting cages will be available for older athletes.
