South Bend Cubs' season to come with big changes // WSBT 22

The home opener is set to happen this Saturday.

You'll notice some big changes when the South Bend Cubs' season kicks off.

The Ivy at Berlin Place apartments are still under construction just outside of left field.

The $23 million development will include 121 apartments and a rooftop deck that can be rented out.

The new game-watching location could allow the team to break more attendance records.

Last year the ballpark drew just over 354,000 fans, this year the goal is to hit the 400,000 mark.

Right now, crews have been working hard to get the park cleaned up, shined up, and ready for fans.

“This is always my favorite time of year. You're at the point where you are at the highest anxiety because you have to get ready for opening day with the new baseball season is just around the corner and absolutely phenomenal. The team arrived the other day in town so we are ready to go we are going to be ready come April 7,” said Joe Hart, South Bend Cubs president.

The inflatable areas have been moved and there are some new food options.
