If seeing the Cubs win the World Series was crossed off your bucket list, maybe the next line underneath it is to meet a World Series champion. Well, you’ll be able to cross that one off too in just a matter of days.
On Tuesday, April 11 at 12:30pm, visit Macy’s on State Street to see Kyle Schwarber himself at a special free meet-and-greet that’s open to the public. If you get there early enough and plan to do some shopping, you might get a nice bonus. The first 100 customers who make a purchase of $35 or more at the Locker Room store will be able to get a picture taken with Kyle and take home a signed poster, so you’ll always remember the day you met the champ.
The event takes place a day after the Cubs home opener game against the Dodgers on April 10, which is also when Wrigleyville will be debuting its new plaza.
The 24-year old catcher and outfielder from Ohio kicked off his MLB career in 2015 after joining the Cubs. He played as a designated hitter in the 2016 World Series. He is currently on the Cubs active roster to return for the 2017 season.
