South Bend Cubs

The South Bend Cubs is a Class A minor league baseball team affiliated with the Chicago Cubs. On August 12, 2018, the team hosted "Mister Rogers Day" -- a promotional game-day event honoring the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. Daniel Tiger was on hand as the Cubs wore special jerseys designed to replicate Mister Rogers' familiar cardigan sweaters.

Notes

Similar jerseys were worn by the Altoona Curve in 2015.

Game-worn jerseys, signed by the players/coaches who wore them, were auctioned in support of PBS affiliate WNIT.
