Freeport, Illinois — Little Cubs Field has announced that another unique event is coming to the field this Saturday. The event, “A Gathering of Lincolns” will happen about 4:15 pm on Saturday, April 21 at Little Cubs Field as part of the events surrounding the Convention of Lincoln Presenters happening this weekend.
Little Cubs Field says over 80 Abraham Lincoln Presenters have been invited to Freeport for the festivities and that they plan to set an unofficial World’s Record for Most Abraham Lincoln Presenters on a Baseball Field at that time. Base ball (2 words then) was just becoming quite popular during the late 1850’s and 1860’s and Lincoln was well aware of its popularity and most likely played the game.
Bring your cameras!
The Gathering of Lincolns will be from about 4:15 pm to 4:45 pm at Little Cubs Field this Saturday. Free admission. The Little Cubs Field gift shop will be open as well.
Then on Monday, April 23, 2018 at 6 pm, it is Opening Day at Little Cubs Field. Abraham Lincoln (our own George Buss) will be throwing out the first pitch and posing for photographs. He may even give a brief address to the crowd. See our Freeport Little League begin the season.
