Popularity of South Bend Cubs Continues to Rise

With the close of the 2016 baseball season, the South Bend Cubs broke their regular season attendance record for the third year in a row.

The team’s success has been attributed to a change in ownership in 2011, $7 million spent on renovations to Four Winds Field and the name and affiliation switch.

The team, previously called the Silver Hawks and affiliated with the Arizona Diamondbacks, became an affiliate of the Chicago Cubs in 2014.
