If you enjoy going to Chicago Cubs games but the trip to Wrigley Field is just too expensive, this freebie can help buffer the sticker shock.

Being A Chicago Cubs Fan Is An Expensive Hobby

I'm a huge Chicago Cubs fan. I've been going to games since I was a little boy. I really enjoy going to Wrigley Field. The only problem is that it's so darn expensive. To go cheer on my favorite baseball team will cost me a couple of hundred dollars at least once you throw in tickets, parking, gas, tolls, food, beverages, merch, and more. I can barely afford to attend one games each season.
