Welcome to the South Bend Cubs Performance Center.
Almost all Major League players got their start in the Minor League farm system. And when a team like the Chicago Cubs is thinking about their farm system, they need to know that their players will have the best possible facilities as well as great community and fan support.
That’s precisely why Chicago signed a player development agreement in September of 2014 with South Bend, and renewed that affiliation in early 2021 through 2030 making the South Bend Cubs the High-A affiliate of the Chicago Cubs.
The South Bend Cubs Performance Center and the facilities at Four Winds Field offer more for the Chicago Cubs players and coaches than any other affiliated franchise. There’s simply no other training facility in the Midwest League that compares.
And because South Bend is the closest Cubs Minor League team to Chicago, it’s true that we’ve seen Major League players sent here for short rehab visits. So, for regional fans, there’s simply no other place to be so close to future and current Major League stars.
Chicago Cubs fans are legendary for their loyalty. They are the most loyal fans in the world. In South Bend, we are among them. And we will always treat the players well.
Go Cubs go!
