The World Series Champion Chicago Cubs will host their Home Opener at Wrigley Field Monday, April 10, at 7:05 p.m. vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers following a six-game road trip to begin the 2017 season. The Dodgers series continues with the team’s World Series Ring Ceremony Wednesday, April 12, and series finale the next day, followed by visits from the Pittsburgh Pirates April 14-16 and Milwaukee Brewers April 17-19.
The team’s opening homestand will include several celebrations of the 2016 World Series team, including the raising of the 2016 championship banner and National League pennant for the Home Opener and distribution of the team’s World Series rings April 12. Following league tradition, Cubs players and coaches will open the home schedule wearing celebratory gold versions of their jerseys and caps April 10 and 12. Bases and baseballs used during these two games will feature commemorative stamps and base jewels as well. Fans looking to purchase an authentic piece of team history may preorder these game-used items by contacting Cubs Authentics, with net proceeds benefiting the Cubs Charities Diamond Project. Replica gold Majestic jerseys and New Era hats are available for purchase at retail outlets including MLB Shop and official Cubs Store locations on Michigan Avenue and at the Park at Wrigley.
On April 12, Cubs players will receive their World Series rings from 20 fans serving as honorary “Championship Ring Bearers.” These dedicated fans were selected from more than 1,500 video nominations by family members, coworkers and friends this offseason.
Fans will have the opportunity to collect promotional items honoring the 2016 Championship Team this season, beginning with a Replica Championship Banner presented by Mastercard April 12, as well as a Replica World Series Trophy presented by Starwood Preferred Guest Saturday, April 15.
