#Cubs extra bases for Fri 4/10

* The Cubs fifth annual Bricks and Ivy Ball raised more than $1.35 million to support Cubs Charities’ programs. The event, held Wednesday night at Union Station, featured the 2015 Cubs team and coaching staff, who mingled with more than 700 guests.

* The Cubs will honor Jackie Robinson during the next homestand which begins Monday at Wrigley Field against the Reds. On Wednesday, the Cubs will join MLB by hosting Jackie Robinson Day at Wrigley Field. Robinson’s legacy is memorialized each year on April 15 to recognize the anniversary of the Hall of Famer, who broke baseball’s color barrier. All uniformed players and personnel will wear Robinson’s No. 42.

Each base used at Wrigley Field will feature a commemorative Jackie Robinson Day base jewel. These game-used bases and No. 42 jerseys will be available to purchase through Cubs Authentics to benefit Cubs Charities.

A pregame ceremony will include video highlights from Robinson’s career.
