As the 2014 MLB season marches on, don't forget to celebrate 100 years of Wrigley Field with the Chicago Cubs! Head to the ballpark June 3-5 to see the Cubs take on the visiting New York Mets, followed by a 1940s themed homestand versus the Miami Marlins, June 6-8.
The Cubs' second game against the Mets, June 4, features a giveaway of a Cubs Cooler Bag, presented by Kraft Cheese. The special cooler complete with Wrigley 100 patch will be given to the first 10,000 fans in attendance at the 7:05 p.m. game.
The following night, the Cubs will have Jersey Off Our Back night, presented by Majestic. The Cubs will raffle off signed, game-worn jerseys to Lucky Seat winners during the 6:05 p.m. game.
On Friday, June 6, the Cubs begin their 1940s era themed homestand with a giveaway of an exclusive, limited-edition All-American Girls Professional Baseball League bobblehead to the first 10,000 fans. "A League of Their Own" comes to mind when you see this one. First pitch is scheduled for 3:05 p.m.
The final game of the series, Sunday, June 8, has a ‘40s throwback Andy Pafko OYO® Mini Figure, given away to the first 5,000 children. The right-handed outfielder and third baseman's likeness is captured in this special edition mini figure, sure to be a hot item for kids coming out to the 1:20 matinee.
The Cubs will also wear their throwback 1942 home jerseys on Sunday, unique blue-sleeved uniforms with white body and special wartime patch on the vest. All levels of professional baseball teams donned wartime patches between 1942 and 1945. The Cubs jersey has a "Health" patch, designed much like the current NFL logo, which was part of a wartime health and fitness awareness campaign.
