9/25 Thanks, everybody
The Cubs reached 3 million fans at home for the seventh consecutive season. They are one of five Major League franchises to surpass the mark every year since 2004. Saturday’s crowd of 39,316 pushed the season total at Wrigley Field to 3,024,916.
Fans attending Sunday’s final home game will be in for some surprises. The players are going to give away items both pre- and post-game, Cubs manager Mike Quade said.
“They’re the best,” Quade said of the fans. “Whether they show up in droves on the road — you go into a ballpark and see blue everywhere — or it’s the support here, they’re phenomenal.”
