Baseball Digest – South Bend Welcomes One Millionth Fan as Cubs Affiliate
The South Bend Cubs (Low A; Midwest League) have reached an attendance milestone, welcoming their one millionth fan since 2015. The 2015 season was the franchise’s first as a Chicago Cubs affiliate, and its first playing as the South Bend Cubs.
“Since the 2015 premier season as the South Bend Cubs, Four Winds Field has seen record-setting crowds,” said Joe Hart, president of the team. “Having reached this milestone so quickly tells you why team owner Andrew Berlin worked so hard to reach an agreement with the Chicago Cubs. Andrew knew this is what the citizens of this region wanted, and he wasn’t going to disappoint them.”
“It feels good to know that our hard work on behalf of the fans in the region is appreciated,” added Andrew T. Berlin, owner of the South Bend Cubs. “Everything we do is for those who want and deserve this kind of entertainment experience in their hometown. I thank every single fan who supports the South Bend Cubs. And I want them to know that we’re never done. We have big plans for the future.”
