FREEPORT (WTVO) – Long time rivals Cubs and Cardinals met on the diamond Saturday morning, but not in Chicago or St. Louis.
Mini Cubs Field out in Freeport is where the rivals clashed.
The Mini Cardinals came all the way from Black Earth, Wisconsin to take on Freeport’s Mini Cubs.
Even though these players are a little smaller than the Rizzo, or Baez they still drew a pretty big crowd.
Cheering parents packed the bleachers as their ball players ran the bases and not just any player got the chance to step out onto Little Cubs Field.
“They have this Cubs field here and today actually they chose a few boys from the little league teams around here and the best of the best got chosen for this and they’re playing against another team from Black Earth”, said Jen Murphy, mom of a mini Cubs player.
Over 20 games have been played in this mini Cubs- Cards series.
