South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg will recognize the accomplishments of the South Bend Cubs during the history making 2015 season in celebration scheduled to start at noon on Wednesday Dec. 2, in the Pepsi Stadium Club at Four Winds Field.

The team will be recognized for shattering all previous single-season attendance numbers at the South Bend stadium, earning the highest award in all of Minor League Baseball–the John H. Johnson President’s Award, and being named the nation’s Team of the Year by Ballpark Digest.

“It’s been an amazing year,” commented Andrew Berlin, owner of the South Bend Cubs. “And the city of South Bend, just like the fans who come from a hundred miles all around, has been a big part of it. We’re grateful to Mayor Buttigieg and every fan throughout the region.”

A complementary ballpark lunch will be served to the first 150 guests in honor of the City of South Bend’s 150th anniversary.
