How the weather will affect the South Bend Cubs
The other side of the equation is wind speed and direction. Winds will be coming out of the northwest throughout the game with speeds ranging from 7-11 MPH through the first few innings to 3-8 MPH for the later innings. Overall, those are relatively light speeds, and most effects on the game would be negligible. However, it is possible that any ball hit into the air during the early innings will drift slightly toward the right side of the field due to the orientation of Four Winds Field. Winds coming from the northwest don't have much of an impact on the tendency for home runs to be hit. If you are wanting to attend a Cubs game in which the probability of home runs is higher than normal, attend a game where south or southwesterly winds are expected!
