The Cubs Convention is the annual gathering which serves as the official kickoff for the team’s upcoming season. With all of the hype surrounding the new players, management, and even a renovated stadium, there’s no doubt that this year’s convention will be exciting for the many die-hard fans.
As such, it should be no surprise that tickets to attend are sold out.
Luckily for the fans and followers of the Cubs, parts of this year’s convention can be watched on a live video webcast by WBBM Newsradio, the new radio partner for the Cubs in 2015.
The LIVE video webcast will be presented here on CBSChicago.com on Saturday, January 17th, from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
