About Out at Wrigley

When I started working for the gay press in 2000 via the newspaper Chicago Free Press, my very first sales call was to the Chicago Cubs. The Chicago Cubs became the first professional male sports team to advertise in a gay paper in the country and I am proud to spearhead that effort.

 

In 2001 I organized the largest a Gay Day at a major league sporting event at Wrigley Field called Out at The Ballgame (now called Out at Wrigley). From 2001 to 2003 we purchased 2,000 seats inside Wrigley Field. With the popularity of the Chicago Cubs, fewer tickets became available for group sales. Starting in 2004 and continuing until 2011 we purchased at least 500 tickets inside and purchased 200 rooftop tickets. Starting in 2012 and continuing this year we bought out the New Budweiser Patio Deck as well as general seating in the ball park.

 

As with years past Market to Market Chicago (mtmchicago.com) and Supergurl Images, which organizes Out at Wrigley will be holding contests to choose an individual to sing the National Anthem and throw out the Ceremonial First Pitch that day.

Ticket Sales Final- When purchasing tickets there are two options for receiving your tickets during checkout. The first is an option to have them mailed to you. If you elect for this option, your tickets will be mailed out in a USPS standard mailing envelope. The second is to pick them up from various locations throughout spring and summer at the Out at Wrigley events, including day of game pre-party. If you elect for ticket pick up, you will be e-mailed the days tickets will be available. Thank you for supporting OAW again this year!
