Gates on Opening Night in Downtown South Bend will open at 5:00 PM. As for the entire season, as fans are accustomed to at Four Winds Field, games from Tuesday through Thursday will have doors open one-hour-and-five-minutes prior to first pitch. While Friday through Sunday games have gate times set for two-hours-and-five-minutes before first pitch.
Most start times for games Tuesday through Saturday during the 2024 season will be at 7:05 PM ET, and Sunday games will begin at 2:05 PM ET. This does not include the first four Saturday home games (April 13, April 27, May 11, and May 25) which will begin at 4:05 PM ET and two Sunday games (May 26 and September 1), which are scheduled for 7:05 PM. The lone Monday night game comes the week of Independence Day on July 1 with a 7:05 PM first pitch.
“As our organization makes it extremely clear, we take our fan’s input and surveys very seriously,” South Bend Cubs President Joe Hart said. “Over the last number of years, our fans have enjoyed the early season Saturday 4:05 PM starts, as well as night games on holiday weekends, so we can provide them with more fireworks shows. Whatever we can do to please and satisfy our supporters on an everyday basis through each season, we’re going to try and do. April 9, 2024 is going to be another amazing Opening Night in South Bend.”
Indeed, more fireworks it will be in 2024. The South Bend Cubs will have 18 scheduled postgame fireworks displays throughout the season including July 2 and 3.
