Our Partnership with the Chicago Cubs
Almost all Major League players got their start in the Minor Leagues. When a Major League franchise is thinking about their farm system, it needs to know that their players will have the best possible facilities as well as great a community and fan support.
That’s precisely why the Chicago Cubs signed a long-term player development agreement with us in September of 2014. South Bend, now the home of the South Bend Cubs, had everything they were looking for.
The 1st Source Bank Performance Center and Four Winds Field offer more for the Chicago Cubs players and coaches than any other affiliated franchise. There’s simply no other comparable training facility in the Midwest League.
Further, because South Bend is the closest Cubs affiliate to Wrigley Field, it’s likely that Major League players will be sent here for short rehab visits. For local fans, there’s simply no other place in the region that offers the opportunity to be close to both future and current Major League stars.
We promise that we will always treat their players with the highest degree of respect and support. Chicago Cubs fans are legendary for their loyalty. In South Bend, we are among them.
Go Cubs Go!
