More than one million people and counting have registered for a shot at a limited number of tickets that are available when the Cubs host the NLCS starting next Tuesday.
Winners of a random drawing have been sent emails letting them know they’re in. But they still have to get through online when the system opens at noon Friday. Tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis, and when they’re gone, they’re gone.
There will be a four-ticket maximum. Those who aren’t in the drawing could have another opportunity – if the Cubs win the pennant.READ MORE: Larry Scott, 32 Charged In May 1 Murder Of Travis Willis In West Pullman
