Individual tickets for South Bend Cubs go on sale in March

Individual game tickets for the 2016 South Bend Cubs season go on sale at 10 a.m. on March 9.

The South Bend Cubs will have coffee and donuts for fans waiting in line and will have giveaways hourly.

Team officials say they expect an increased demand for tickets this year.

They said season ticket sales are up 31-percent over last year.

The opening game, on April 7, is expected to sell out. The South Bend Cubs will play the West Michigan Whitecaps.

“We’re gearing up for a very busy day on March 9,” said Joe Hart, President of the South Bend Cubs. “Since last season ended, we’ve been getting phone calls asking about tickets for this season. Our season ticket sales are already up over 30 percent from last year. It’s just remarkable. It shows that not only do our fans love our affiliation with the Chicago Cubs, they’re liking what they see at the ballpark and want to come back.”

The hourly prizes are for fans who purchase tickets at the stadium box office:

11 a.m. - Chance to sing the 7th inning stretch at a South Bend Cubs game
Noon - Chance to throw out a first pitch
