Chicago Cubs Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg will return to the Wrigley Field dugout as a Minor League manager when his Single-A Peoria Chiefs host the Kane County Cougars in the official Midwest League contest. The game is believed to be the first Minor League contest in the ballpark's 94-year history.
Fans attending this first-of-its-kind event at Wrigley Field will have the opportunity to participate in a number of traditional Minor League ballpark activities, such as dizzy bat races, t-shirt tosses and the opportunity for all kids 14 years and younger to run the Wrigley Field bases at the end of the game.
Fans will also be entertained between innings by the mascots of both teams and an assortment of other fun characters who regularly perform at Peoria Chiefs games and several other ballparks.
Peoria became a Cubs' Single-A affiliate in 2005 and is located approximately 165 miles southwest of Chicago. Kane Country is affiliated with the Oakland Athletics and is located a little more than 40 miles west of Chicago.
