South Bend Cubs_The South Bend Cubs and Saint Joseph Health System (SJHS) have teamed up for the seniors of our community with special ticket pricing and activities for the 2019 season. They are also coming together to offer residents of St. Paul’s and two South Bend Cubs players the unique living experience of residing together for the season at the senior community.

“For the past four seasons we have seen first-hand the passion that our senior community has for the South Bend Cubs organization as a whole,” Team president Joe Hart said. “We are always excited and grateful to see them at Four Winds Field. It’s an honor to continue these programs.”

The Silver Sluggers program will offer a special ticket discount for any senior 55 years old or older. This discounted price will be $6 for a field box ticket – a 45-percent discount off the normal ticket price – at every Wednesday home game this season, beginning April 17.

Once a senior attends their first game, they will receive a Silver Sluggers card that will be punched each time they attend. After attending four Wednesday games, Silver Sluggers participants will receive a free South Bend Cubs Silver Sluggers hat. After attending seven Wednesday games or more, Silver Sluggers participants will be invited to a free ballpark picnic at the final Wednesday home game of the season, Aug. 21.

Seniors attending South Bend Cubs games as part of the Silver Sluggers program will be seated in a “Friendship Section,” where they will have the opportunity to meet with old friends and make new ones. At each Wednesday home game, one Silver Sluggers participant will be selected to throw out the ceremonial first pitch.
