There is a “Notre Dame Day at Wrigley” for the Shamrock Series game against Wisconsin

Leave the goat at home

On Friday, the Chicago Cubs announced that September 24 will be “Notre Dame Day at Wrigley.” That day is the Friday before the Notre Dame Fighting Irish take on the Wisconsin Badgers in a Shamrock Series game at Soldier Field. The first 2000 fans to buy a ticket for the Cubs game on the 24th against the St. Louis Cardinals will receive a special Notre Dame themed Cubs hat from New Era.

In a weird (and terrible) way, this reminds me of a 2017 Cubs game against the Atlanta Braves with all of the fans of the Georgia Bulldogs in attendance — who were ready to completely takeover Notre Dame Stadium the next day.

This particular Shamrock Series game is quite different than the usual one we get from Notre Dame. Wisconsin is actually the home team here, but the Badgers will wear special all white uniforms while the Irish will wear their “Chicago but actually Green Bay” uniforms that were unveiled a few weeks ago.
