Option 1: Redeem 15K Starpoints for 2 tickets to play softball on 7/30 in Wrigley. You’ll also get a Wrigley Field tour and food/drinks. You are able to request to be on a specific person’s team.

Option 2: Bid to field your own team of 12 players to play softball on 7/30 in Wrigley. You’ll also get 12 customized Cubs jerseys, a Wrigley Field tour, and food/drinks. Last year this sold for 183K points for the team.

You can join other DDFers in bidding for the team package in this thread.

Unfortunately the event will take place during the 9 days.

Last year a group of 12 DDFers got together to redeem the full team package.

SPG even catered kosher meals for us. We had an awesome time playing and the customized jerseys were very cool as well:

The surprise for the day was that we weren’t playing regular softball. We would play Chicago style softball with a 16 inch ball.

Alas you don’t play on the actual diamond, the games take place in the outfield. But it was still an awesome and surreal experience to be able to play in the friendly confines:

While we crushed in our first game, we got beat by the team that would wind up winning the championship in our 2nd game. They wound up winning double the amount of Starpoints that they paid to participate in the event.

I didn’t even think about it, but apparently wearing an Indians hat during an event at Wrigley with a Cubs jersey was controversial. When anyone asked me about the juxtoposition I just said, “What do you mean? I’m just previewing the 2016 World Series matchup!”

Everyone laughed when I said that, but little did they know that 2 months later the 2 teams that hadn’t won a championship in a combined 176 years would indeed take place. Alas, my throwing out the first pitch before game 7 didn’t help the home team take home the trophy.

Will there be a team from Dansdeals bidding? I would like to reserve two spots on the team if possible. I have the requisite number of SPG points to pay. It wold be great if someone made a siyum also.

I tried huca…..any other suggestions? .you mentioned in your post about buying spg at 30% discount that Alaskan charges 360k rt milan to jfk for ek first but with jl just 100k rt ….unless one way isn’t half ? But it definitely shouldn’t be the 90k they said on the phone ?
