Per the Notre Dame press release:

CHICAGO, Ill. — A regular season midweek matchup just got a little more interesting.

On Monday, Notre Dame baseball (18-15) announced the Irish will play their May 16 matchup against Northwestern (5-25) at Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs. It is the first time Notre Dame has played at the Friendly Confines. It is Northwestern’s second baseball game at the iconic stadium.

Offensively, Notre Dame had nine players notch hits when the Wildcats visited, and Jack Penney, Zack Prajzner, Carter Putz and Danny Neri had multi-hit games. Both Penney and Joey Spence hit home runs, and Vinny Martinez added 3 RBI.

The May 16 matchup will air on B1G+ at 5 p.m. CT. Tickets for the Chicago clash are now on sale here.
