Thursday, April 9, is the first Opening Day for the South Bend Cubs.
If you’re heading out to Four Winds Field this evening to see the Cubs take on the Bowling Green Hot Rods, here’s everything you need to know.
AT THE FIELD
The gates at Four Winds Field open up at 5 p.m. Blammo will perform and fans are welcome to walk around the stadium, watch batting practice and grab food.
Stu, the South Bend Cubs mascot, will make his debut at the game.
There will be fireworks after the game, weather permitting.
Speaking of weather…
Don’t get too discouraged by the rain and thunderstorms hitting Michiana during the day.
Of course a baseball game wouldn’t be complete without a hot dog, and the South Bend Cubs are serving what many call “the best hot dogs in baseball” — the same ones served at Boston Red Sox games.
Philly cheesesteak nachos and burgers from Burgertopia are also on the food lineup.
Regular tickets are all sold out, but lawn seats might still be available.
You can buy tickets online or at the box office at the stadium.
