This week is the final time for fans to get out to Four Winds Field to see the South Bend Cubs play.
The Cubs (22-37), a Chicago Cubs affiliate, have been eliminated from Midwest League playoff contention so this week’s homestand that begins Tuesday night against the Quad Cities River Bandits (22-37) will end their season. Quad Cities, also out of playoff contention, is an affiliate of the Kansas City Royals. The teams are currently tied for last place in the Midwest League’s West Division for the second half.
All homestand games take place at Four Winds Field, 501 W. South Street, South Bend. Tickets can be purchased online at SouthBendCubs.com or by calling the Box Office at 574-235-9988. The box office is open during the week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on weekend game days until the seventh inning.
Tuesday’s game (7:05 p.m.) is Tail Waggin and Triple Play Tuesday. Fans can bring their dog to the park. Special ticket offer is a game ticket, hot dog and 24-ounce fountain drink for $13. Those tickets must be purchased 24 hours in advance.
