Streetwise vendor Samuel Sanders, dressed in a bear costume, playfully jokes with a crowd waiting in line for Cubs’ tickets as he asks for money Friday, Oct. 7, 2016 at Wrigley Field in Chicago. Can’t stand to miss the Cubs during their final homestand this week? You may have to — literally.
Standing-room-only tickets could be your best chance, because as the regular season comes to a close, seated tickets are going quick. Just before Friday’s early afternoon Cubs-Cardinals matchup, standing-room tickets were all the box office offered. (And they were $35 each for about 300 spots, but prices and availability vary per game).
As for the postseason, don’t count on standing room to be your secret savior. Cubs officials said they may only be available through a lottery, if at all.
