South Bend Cubs honoring military during Memorial Day weekend games
SOUTH BEND, Ind. – The South Bend Cubs will be hosting Military Appreciation Days on Saturday, May 29 and Sunday, May 30 at Four Winds Field.
The celebrations include a free game ticket for all active-duty military and armed forces veterans on either night.
Due to COVID-19 capacity restrictions, only 150 tickets will be available per game. Tickets can be claimed by visiting the Box Office and showing a military ID card or proof of service.
“While current health and safety guidelines have limited our stadium capacity, it is still important to our organization to honor and recognize those who have fought for our country,” said South Bend Cubs Team President Joe Hart. “These tickets are just a small way we can say thank you to those who gave so much for our country.”
Cubs players and coaches will wear a patriotic themed hat on both nights. Play will be stopped during the games so teams and fans can honor all active-duty military and veterans as well as those who sacrificed their lives for the country.
Gates open at 5 p.m. and first pitch is at 7:05 p.m. for both nights.
Sunday evening’s game will conclude with a military-inspired post-game firework show.
