One of the things I've missed most since the pandemic started is seeing live baseball.

In years past we've taken numerous trips with our friends at Midwest Bus Trips to various ballparks to see our Cubbies. While Wrigley Field always feels like home, I appreciate other ballparks, including the Brewers stadium.

Since being built it was called Miller Park, but thanks to new corporate sponsorship it's now known as American Family Field.

While seating for some parks is still limited, a few places are opening things back up.

Unfortunately, some of stadiums have yet to open group sales so it's been hard to find bus trips and group outings to the ballpark.

I talked to Aaron at Midwest Bus Trips and he told me last year was really rough for him. Out of over two hundred scheduled trips featuring concerts and sporting events, he said he was only able to send three.

Yeah... you read that right. Three!

Since we've done radio station trips with Midwest Bus Trips in the past, I've fielded no less that a thousand calls from listeners asking me when we're going to get back to the ballpark.

Monday Aaron called to let us know he was finally able to put a game bus trip together. Monday, June 28th he's loading up a group to head to Milwaukee to see the Brewers host the Cubs. Tickets are available now but it sounds like the bus is already half sold, so if you're interested you should buy your tickets soon.

Currently both teams are tied for first in the National League Central Division, so it's going to be a heated game for sure!

Aaron also mentioned two other trips to see the Crosstown Classic between the White Sox and the Cubs on August 28th and August 29th at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago. (Again... the White Sox are currently in first, so this should be a great match up!)

Aaron said as soon as group sales at Wrigley Field start to happen he's going to try to get some trips together for fans. Make sure you keep an eye on the Midwest Bus Trips website for more details.

Lets go Cubs!
