The Chicago Cubs haven’t surprised anyone to start the season. Expected to be one of the worst teams in the league, their nine wins is currently tied for the lowest total in the MLB. The Chicago Cubs schedule doesn’t get any easier this weekend, with last season’s National League champion, the St. Louis Cardinals, headed to Wrigley Field. But the fans will have something to get excited for, with the Cubs holding promotions for all three games of the series. Cubs tickets are 29 percent below the season average with prices averaging $72.02 for the series.
5/2 – Adam Wainwright vs. CHC Travis Wood | Avg. Price: $55.32 | Get-in Price: $9
It’ll cost just $9 to join the University of Illinois celebration Friday afternoon. In addition to festivities inside and outside the stadium, the first 10,000 fans will receive a Red Grange bobblehead to commemorate Grange’s three-touchdown performance against Northwestern in 1923. That might be all Cubs fans are celebrating with Wainwright on the mound for the Cardinals, who is having another phenomenal year.

5/3 – Michael Wacha vs. CHC Jake Arrieta | Avg. Price: $93.47 | Get-in Price: $28
On Saturday the first 10,000 fans to enter Wrigley Field will receive a Cubs fedora. If that’s not enticing enough, how about the chance to see Jake Arrieta’s first start of the season?
