The South Bend Cubs and Four Winds Field have been selected as the host of the 2019 Midwest League All-Star game. The city last held the event 30 years ago. The presenting sponsor will be Four Winds Casinos, which opened its first Indiana location in South Bend at the beginning of the year.
Team owner Andrew Berlin said "we’re grateful to the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians (the owners of the casino business) and Four Winds Casinos for their support of the baseball experience in South Bend. As partners, they’ve helped to make exciting moments like this one possible over the past five years." Four Winds Casinos is also the title sponsor of the city’s baseball stadium.
The run-up to the game itself, which will be June 18, will include a Fan Fest with a home run derby and autograph session, as well as family-friendly activities like the ballpark’s Splash Pad, Toyota Fun Zone and on-field opportunities. You can connect to more about the game by clicking here.
