South Bend Cubs to play Notre Dame in exhibition game

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- The South Bend Cubs and the University of Notre Dame's baseball team will play a 7-inning exhibition game on April 3. All proceeds from ticket sales will go to charity.

Tickets for the game at Four Winds Field will cost just $5.

"The exhibition game allows our team to get an idea of what it’s like to play at Four Winds Field prior to the official first pitch of 2019 being thrown," South Bend Cubs President Joe Hart said. "This game also acts as a full run-through for some of our new gameday staff to make sure everything is perfect for Opening Night.”

The proceeds will be split between both teams to go to a charity of their choice.

The Notre Dame players will donate their portion to the Samantha Hickey Foundation, which raises money for Memorial Hospital’s Pediatric Cancer Center.

The South Bend Cubs charity is the Center for the Homeless.
