CHICAGO – The Chicago Cubs return to Wrigley Field to host the Milwaukee Brewers August 2-4 and the Oakland Athletics August 5-7.

Starting Friday, August 2, and at each home game in August, 14 fans at Wrigley Field will be randomly selected to receive a “only-at-Wrigley Field-would-this-happen” experience or giveaway as part of the “14 Days of Wrigley Field Fantics” summer promotion. One lucky ticket holder will be presented with either a unique giveaway or experience such as receiving an authenticated item, selecting an inning-break song with Gary Pressy, sharing a ballpark snack with Ryne Sandberg or playing rock-paper-scissors with Clark. Stay tuned throughout August for sneak peeks of upcoming giveaways and experiences and don’t miss your opportunity to be a part of the excitement. Learn more and secure your tickets at www.cubs.com/fantics.

Cubs fans can continue to win big while giving back to the Chicago community through the Cubs Charities 50/50 Raffle program. There are two ways fans can purchase tickets for the Cubs Charities 50/50 Raffle – inside the ballpark and online. Fans have the opportunity to purchase Cubs Charities 50/50 Raffle tickets online starting at 11 a.m. CDT before the start of each Cubs home game by visiting www.cubs.com/raffle.
