Rockford, Ill. – The Rockford IceHogs are proud to host Major League Baseball’s Commissioner’s trophy, presented to the 2016 World Series Champion Chicago Cubs, at the BMO Harris Bank Center on Sunday, Jan. 8.
A select number of fans in attendance to Sunday’s 4 p.m. game against the Chicago Wolves will receive a wristband permitting access to taking a picture with the World Series trophy.
All fans in attendance Jan. 8 will still have the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the World Series trophy during an on-ice ceremony prior to puck drop. The trophy will then remain on display in the OSF Kids Corner throughout the remainder of the IceHogs game, where fans who received wristbands are invited to pose for a picture with MLB’s prestigious hardware. Fans must provide their own cameras for any pictures with the World Series trophy.
Please note that a ticket to the IceHogs game does not guarantee a chance to take a photo with the World Series trophy.
Fans are also reminded that the IceHogs’ normal, gameday camera policies will remain in effect for photos with the World Series trophy, including limiting personal cameras to 55mm or less lenses. The IceHogs will be providing an on-site staff member to assist with fan photos with the World Series trophy, however, fans must still supply their own camera for any pictures with the trophy.
