#Cubs fans can register now for postseason tix

Excited about the Cubs playing postseason baseball? Starting today at 9 a.m. CT, fans can register for a random drawing to win a chance to purchase single game postseason tickets for a potential National League Wild Card game and NL Division Series game.

The Cubs announced details Thursday for fans who want the opportunity to purchase single game tickets to potential postseason games at Wrigley Field.

Beginning at 9 a.m. CT Thursday until noon CT on Sept. 23, fans can register for the random drawing. Registration will remain open throughout the postseason at http://www.cubs.com/postseason, with cut-off times for drawings to additional potential series to be announced as the postseason unfolds.

Fans who register for the online ticket opportunity will be notified via email if they have been selected for a chance to purchase before single game tickets go on sale. Those who are randomly selected from all eligible registrants will have a one-time chance to purchase a maximum of four tickets to a potential Wild Card game or Division Series game at Wrigley Field, pending availability.

Tickets will be available for purchase on a first-come, first-served basis. Being selected in a drawing does not guarantee the opportunity to purchase tickets to a postseason game.

The number of potential postseason tickets that may become available to fans is limited as a result of ticket allocations to Cubs season ticket holders and other partners. To provide a purchase opportunity to as many fans as possible, all registered fans who are not selected for early postseason contests will remain eligible for selection if the Cubs advance to subsequent rounds. Fans may only purchase tickets once during the postseason.

The postseason single game ticket on-sale date and pricing will be announced at a later time.

Fans can visit http://www.cubs.com/postseason for more information about potential single game postseason ticket sales or call the Cubs Fan Services team at 773-388-8270 with any questions.

Registration is open to legal residents of the 50 United States who are 18 years of age or older at the time of entry. Void where prohibited; additional exclusions apply. Full terms and conditions are available at http://www.cubs.com/postseason.


Anybody starting to notice the youngsters playing all different positions and the Cubs still winning? Schwarber C/LF, Bryant 3B/LF/CF/RF, Baez 2B/3B and everyone knows he can play SS, Russell 2B/SS and Soler only playing RF.
Then the last two #1 Draft Picks expressing they would like to stick to their original position, reportedly working hard to get better so they can stay there, but at the same time, doing as they are asked for the good of the team. These young men are not only good ballplayers, but seem to be all in on the team concept.
The last couple months, two players have come back to the team after a REHAB assignment bragging about a young Catcher named Contreras at AA. Contreras won the Batting title at AA, hitting .333 with a .413 OBP. The more impressive part in my opinion, is that Montero and Ramirez gave Contreras rave reviews upon their return from REHAB. Comments like a cannon for an arm and very good game calling have this fan excited to see him in the AFL. Will he be added to the mix above next May or June?
If so, that’s puts Schwarber in LF. When Soler returns, he has RF locked up. With those two positions taken, I would assume if Baez has made the adjustment to the ML, he would be at 2B, so Bryant could be at 3B. Where does that leave Castro SS/2B, LaStella 2B/SS/3B and Alcantara 2B/SS/CF when he puts it together?
The point I am trying to make is: there are more prospects on the way. Where are they going to play? Next year fans may see Contreras and McKinney. 2017 Almora, G Torres, Zagunis, Happ and maybe even Dewees.
So looking at it that way, do you sign Fowler to a 2-4 year contract? Then I wonder what it would be like to see Schwarber, Bryant, Rizzo, Soler, Baez, Russell in the lineup at the same time. Sounds exciting to me.
Some of these youngsters have to be traded, not yet, but in a couple years. What an Organization, great time to be a Cubs fan.

Aloha jasper, we can discuss all this exciting developments over that Coke! I do not see Fowler coming back unless he gives a sweetheart deal. I do not see a lot of the bull pen coming back next year either and that is just fine. Are you signing up for tickets? Mahalo!

As I pointed out the other day, Fowler’s closest comp may be Brett Gardner, who signed a 4/52 deal with the Yankees, so don’t expect Fowler to go for less years and probably not much less money. Especially if his stock rises with a good postseason. Next year will be another stop-gap solution (which isn’t necessarily bad, after all that’s what Fowler was this year really).

Doug, agreed Fowler was a stop gap for lack of an alternative for 2015. But don’t you think with the good year he is having (especially turning it on in the second half) the Cubs may now look at him as a 4+ year solution instead of a stopgap? He may have turned the corner at only 29 years old and we may now be seeing the Dexter Fowler for several years to come. If next year is another CF stopgap, which it could very well be, who are the Cubs waiting on? Almora in 2017 you think?

Aloha Doug- very true. I would not expect Fowler or anyone for that matter to do what Kerry Wood for the organization to come back to it. I think people want to play for this team and so I just put it out there. Like jasper said above with all the options they have for the outfield, maybe they let Fowler go. Take care now. Mahalo!
