Cubs vs. Cards

Do you bleed Cubbies blue or Cardinals red? Cheer on your favorite team as the Chicago Cubs take on the St. Louis Cardinals at historic Wrigley Field for a 1:20 PM game. Show your team spirit and enjoy one of the fiercest long-standing rivalries in National League Baseball. We'll arrive in time for you to roam around Wrigleyville before the first pitch, or enter the stadium a little early to watch pre-game warm-up. Lunch will be on your own. Your trip includes transportation to and from Chicago and a game ticket in our block of seats spread across sections 202 - 204. Registration is open until all tickets are sold.  However, no refunds after May 2nd or due to weather delay/game cancellation.
