Major League Park, Minor League Prices

Chicago's home to lovable losing and understated, classic stadia aesthetics, Wrigley Field is once again hosting the Cubs "Road To Wrigley" night on Wednesday, July 7. The annual game pits the North Siders' farm team, the Peoria Chiefs, against a rival minor league squad -- this year it's the Kane County Cougars. The game has been big hit with Cubs fans since it started three years ago and with the Cubs on a west coast road trip (and mired in fourth place in the NL Central) this season's game promises to be a welcome break. Fans' wallets will receive a break as well, with game tickets starting for a mere five bucks! In addition to the low ticket prices; "Road to Wrigley" night features $2 hot dogs and beer prices sinking to the very un-Wrigley price of $3.50 per brew -- if you're keeping score at home, yes, that's half the price of a regular Old Style.

If the minor league prices aren't enough to "take you out to the ball game," for the families, Levy Restaurants (the catering company at Wrigley) will also be offering kids cooking classes, and all kids will get a chance to run the bases after the game.
