Lifelong Dreams Are About to Come True
Come enjoy the ultimate two-day exclusive experience at Wrigley Field as part of the Inaugural “Chicago Cubs Fantasy Camp at Wrigley Field.”
On August 8, watch the Cubs take batting practice and meet select Cubs players before the ballpark’s gates open. Afterwards, be escorted to a private mezzanine suite to enjoy the 1:20 contest vs. the Cincinnati Reds in VIP style.
On August 9, fulfill a lifelong fantasy of playing baseball games on the hollowed grounds of Wrigley Field. Take batting practice off former All-Star pitcher Rick Sutcliffe, listen to batting tips from Hall of Famers like Billy Williams and Ernie Banks, and play baseball games on Wrigley Field as a Chicago Cub! Participants will arrive at the ballpark and be granted immediate access into the Cubs’ locker room, sign one-day contracts and receive customized Cubs uniforms. Guests will participate in instructional clinics at four stations on the field, including hitting in the batting cage, infield drills, outfield drills and a bullpen session. Teams will then face off for a four-team hard ball tournament on the diamond.
A press conference follows in the team press room, followed by a post-tournament banquet. Former Cubs Hall of Famers Ernie Banks and Billy Williams, former All-Star pitchers Lee Smith and Rick Sutcliffe, and former All-Star catcher Randy Hundley will instruct guests, relive historic memories and provide their unique insight on the game of baseball. Participant’s families are welcome at the ballpark to view the event. America’s pastime will never be the same!
Each Fantasy Camp roster spot includes pre-game access to the Cubs’ August 8 game vs. Cincinnati, a mezzanine suite ticket for the game, a customized Chicago Cubs uniform, behind-the-scenes access to Wrigley Field, on-field participation, photos and video from both days, personal interaction with Cubs heroes and memories that will last a lifetime!
One roster slot for the two-day experience will cost $7,500. Two roster slots can be purchased for $6,000 each and three or more roster spots can be purchased for $5,000 each. Reservations for this experience are on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Experience the magic of Wrigley Field
OK, I have to admit that this would be one of the coolest things a Cubs Fan could ever do. But as an overweight legally blind guy, I probably would make a complete fool out of myself, and I don’t need to drop 7500 smackers to do that. I can make a complete fool out of myself for much less. And even though I’m pretty down on the Cubs this year, it would still be ab amazing opportunity.
Who knows, the team may be able to pick up a prospect or two out of this camp. Yo Lou, you need any fat blind guys on the roster?
