South Bend Cubs exhibition game canceled due to weather


It’s hard to tell with the snow, but Midwest League Baseball is almost back in South Bend.

The South Bend Cubs were supposed to play one final tune up game Wednesday against Notre Dame, but Mother Nature had other plans.

However the 2018 regular season begins on the road Thursday night as the Cubs travel further north to take on West Michigan.

They'll do so with Jimmy Gonzalez back at the helm.

Gonzalez enters his fourth season as the manager of the South Bend Cubs.

WSBT 22 got the chance to catch up with Jimmy prior to the first pitch of 2018 and he says he's excited to get going and believes this team has what it takes to win a Midwest league title.
