7/18 Mystery ball event Tuesday
If you’re coming to Tuesday’s Cubs game vs. the Astros, be prepared for a little mystery. Ryan Theriot and Cubs Charities have teamed up to create a “Mystery Ball” sale at Wrigley Field. Proceeds will benefit the National Wildlife Federation in support of its Gulf Coast relief efforts.
Sales will take place in front of the Wrigley Field gates, so even if you don’t have a ticket, you can still purchase a “Mystery Ball” or make a contribution.
Each Cubs player plus manager Lou Piniella plus “Mr. Cub” Ernie Banks and select Cubs alumni have autographed baseballs for the event. More than 1,000 baseballs will be sold. Each signed baseball will be placed in a brown bag and distributed randomly at the entrance gates. Fans can purchase a mystery ball for $20.
Fans may purchase the items when the gates open at 5:05 p.m. CT. Balls will be sold until the third inning or until supplies last.
