South Bend, Ind. — A franchise record crowd of 7,575 fans packed Four Winds Field to see the South Bend Cubs play the Great Lake Loons on Saturday evening, April 18 at Four Winds Field in South Bend.

“It's April,” said Joe Hart, President of the South Bend Cubs. “This gives me, the team and the staff goosebumps. To see this kind of fan support so early in the season tells you what kind of pent up Cubs loyalty this region has. It's going to be a phenomenal year.”

Team owner Andrew Berlin, who was at the game added, “It's a great feeling to know that we've given both the Cubs what they wanted in terms of a good home for their players, and the fans in Michiana what they wanted — a relationship with the Chicago Cubs. To set a record is one thing. But to do it in April? Joe is right. This is going to be a remarkable season in the history of the franchise.”
