Little Cubs Field is planning on adding the left field bleachers to the iconic replica of Wrigley Field in Freeport.
A fundraising drive is starting now, with Cubs fans being offered a chance to make this dream come true.
For a $100 donation, a metal seat plate will be permanently installed on a seat in the Left Field Bleachers with name of your family, business or organization.
In addition, all those who contribute will become honorary "Bleacher Bums" and a plaque naming contributors will be displayed in the Little Cubs Field Gift Shop.
Only 180 seats are available, and when sold, will provide the money needed to finish the project.
The framework for the bleachers was donated by a local businessman, and money is needed for concrete, steps, and replacement aluminum seats. The bleachers will be 5 rows high, about 40 feet long, and 9 feet off the ground in left center field above the ivy at Little Cubs Field, 1160 W. Empire, Freeport, Il.
Construction could be completed in 2013 if funds are raised.
Donations can also be made directly by credit card via our website, www.littlecubsfield.com by clicking on the "Bleacher Bum" logo on the home page.
