Cubs 2008 home uniforms

Who better to kick off the Chicago Cubs' 2000s themed homestand on Labor Day than the Little League World Series U.S. champion Jackie Robinson West All-Stars! These young ballplayers who captured the nation's hearts during the 2014 Little League World Series will be on hand at Wrigley Field to meet the Cubs during batting practice, throw the ceremonial first pitch and lead the 7th inning stretch from the field.

The Chicago Cubs finish the last 10 days of July with as many home games, kicked off today by a three-game historic 1970s homestand versus the San Diego Padres. The Cubs then face division rival St. Louis Cardinals, July 25-27, and then cap their stay at home with a four-game series against the Colorado Rockies, July 28-31. Make sure to head over to Wrigley Field for these three great home series and celebrate the Friendly Confines' 100th birthday.

The baseball history loving world has embarked on a season long celebration of 100 years of Wrigley Field.  While the majority of us Cub fans can wallow in our misery of never having witnessed a major league championship, we can certainly bask in the glory of cheering on our team in one of the world's grandest sport cathedrals.  Although the ballpark is my own personal holy place, what makes Wrigley Field particularly special for me is the historic neighborhood she calls home.  And her saloons help tell her story.
