Redbird nights at Chicago baseball

Baseball base

It’s time for Chicago baseball Redbirds! On June 18, we’re ready to sing Go, Cubs, Go at Wrigley Field. For our South Siders, our White Sox night is looking for a little Sweet Home Chicago on July 11. Pregame receptions are planned for both game days with chances to meet the new executive director of alumni engagement Kris Harding, M.S. ’94, Reggie Redbird and other ISU leadership. After a chance to reconnect with Illinois State and hang out with fellow alumni, we’ll head to the stadium to catch the game!
