The Cubs have one last historic homestand as part of Wrigley Field's 100th birthday celebration before teams hit the All-Star break. Come out to the Friendly Confines to watch the Cubbies take on the Atlanta Braves for a 1960s era homestand, July 11-13.
The series kicks off with stud shortstop Starlin Castro receiving his All-Star jersey on Friday, July 11 before the opener. Anthony Rizzo's got a shot at joining his teammate, provided he gets enough votes through the MLB's Final Vote campaign. Batting .280 with 20 homers and 49 RBIs as of this morning, he's got a great chance.
Also at that game tomorrow, the first 10,000 fans in attendance will receieve an exclusive Gale Sayers Bobblehead, commemorating the legendary Bears running back and Hall of Famer, Class of 1977.
On Saturday, July 12, the first 10,000 fans receive a Billy Williams Retired Number Flag. Williams, NL Rookie of the Year in 1961 and Hall of Fame leftfielder, is among the Pantheon of Cubs greats.
Sunday's day game features a '60s Throwback Cubs Etch-A-Sketch® given to the first 5,000 kids in attendance, while the first 1,000 kids in the park after the game can run the bases.
Also for Sunday's game, see the Cubs take the field in their 1969 throwback uniforms, honoring some of the team's most popular players from that era, including Williams, Ron Santo, Fergie Jenkins and Mr. Cub Ernie Banks.
Don't forget to fill up on specialty food offerings, inspired by The Sixties. Chow down on a Kraft BBQ pork sandwich with Kraft cheese and fried onions on a toaste onion roll, traditional Buffalo wings, or the 1960s Buffalo Wing Dog. This Vienna Beef hot dog is topped with diced chicken, buffalo sauce, crumbled bleu cheese and chopped celery. Yum.
So come on out to the ballpark and watch the Cubs take on the Braves. Wrigley Field's birthday is being celebrated all season long, don't miss out on the festivities! Purchase tickets here.
