South Bend Cubs TicketsBaseball has been an integral part of South Bend since the late 1800s. However, the late 1950s saw the factories that funded local teams begin to shut down in the post-war era. For over three decades, there was no professional baseball in South Bend. The Chicago White Sox changed that when they put a new Single-A affiliate in South Bend for the 1988 season. They changed the name of the team in 1994 to the South Bend Silver Hawks. The Silver Hawks never made a postseason appearance until the Arizona Diamondbacks took over the franchise in the 1997 season. South Bend then went on to seven consecutive postseasons between 2003 and 2009. The Chicago Cubs became the parent organization leading into the 2015 season and the team has continued their winning ways ever since. The South Bend Cubs won the Midwestern League Championship in 2019 and are looking for a repeat this season. You can grab your tickets to see the South Bend Cubs at StubHub.
