South Bend Cubs expected to set new attendance record
The South Bend Cubs say by the end of the Labor Day weekend, a new attendance record may be set at Four Winds Field.
It would be the third consecutive year a new attendance record is set.
“We’re just 11,453 tickets away from breaking the record,” said Joe Hart, President of the South Bend Cubs in a press release. “Right now, we’re averaging 5,100 ticket sales per game. So, if the weather holds out, we’ll surpass the 347,678 set in the 2015 regular season, by the end of the evening on Monday (Labor Day).”
“These are some of the greatest fans in the world,” added Andrew T. Berlin, Owner of the South Bend Cubs in a press release. “It’s just amazing to have witnessed a sold out Opening Night in April, even though it was snowing. And now, at the other end of the regular season with warm summer nights, all those families are still coming out to enjoy this family atmosphere for a few final memories before the playoffs begin. Call it a new attendance record if we set one by next Monday. But I also think of it as a record number of good memories.”
The final regular-season homestand runs Saturday, September 3rd through Monday, September 5th. The South Bend Cubs will take on the Dayton Dragons in all three games.
