Rooftop seats open at Four Winds Field


The moment Andrew Berlin purchased the South Bend SilverHawks six years ago, the baseball experience changed in downtown South Bend.

It changed again in 2015, when he brought a partnership with the Chicago Cubs to the table.

And again tonight, Four Winds Field takes a big step towards resembling a mini-Wrigley Field.

"I think the biggest thing is giving people the true feel of what you get at Wrigley Field," South Bend Cubs Team President Joe Hart said on WSBT 22 news.

"We're going to have nights where the rooftop is open to the general public. Its not always going to be corporate hospitality. We want our fans to enjoy it."

Wednesday is the Grand Opening of the United Federal Credit Union Rooftop.

Initial fan impressions were favorable.

"Very impressed," South Bend Cubs fan Tim Brown said. "It reminds me of the real rooftops in Chicago."

Which Hart says, is the entire goal.

"Everything we've done at this level is very intimate. Its' obviously a smaller setting and footprint than what they have at Wrigley but we want to offer the same experiences."

Wednesday was the Grand Opening of the United Federal Credit Union Rooftop, which sits atop the Ivy at Berlin place behind the left field concourse.

Additional individual game tickets for the rooftop seats will be held on August 8, 27, and 30.
