Historic Matchup: Red Sox @ Cubs, June 15th-17th, 2012
Cubs Destinations started the summer off right when the Red Sox came to the North Side. Cubs fans came from all over to see this rare re-match of the 1918 World Series. The Cubs took 1 out of 3 with strong pitching performances from Dempster and Samardzija. The weekend’s games were surely unforgettable as Cubs fans got exclusive access to Wrigley with a VIP tour that included pictures in front of the world famous Ivy, dugout access, press box access and a private pre-game reception with Darwin Barney in the Center Field Suite! Little did Cubs fans know that they were hanging with a future record-breaking second baseman. In August, Barney set the National League single season record with 114 consecutive errorless innings! In addition to a great hotel stay at the Westin, fans had great game tickets and even snagged some autographs during batting practice!
Great weather, great atmosphere and great baseball capped off a historic weekend at Wrigley. See pictures below!
