Chicago Dogs Play Inaugural Ball Game In Rosemont


THEY ARE PLAYING BALL IN ROSEMONT. SEVERAL YEARS AGO, THE VILLAGE OFFERED UP SPACE FOR THE CUBS TO CALL HOME. THEY PAST AND INSTEAD, THE INDEPENDENT MINOR LEAGUE CHICAGO DOGS TOOK THE FIELD. CBS 2’S JEREMY ROSS IS THERE WITH MORE ON THE BIG MILESTONE TONIGHT. Reporter: THE FIRST CHEERS OF MINOR LEAGUE BASEBALL FIELD ROSEMONT’S IMPACT FIELD. YEARS IN THE MAKING, THE STADIUM PACKED WITH A SOLD-OUT CROWD OF 6300. THE FIRST TICKETS SCANNED, THE CHICAGO DOGS, MEET YOUR NEW BASEBALL FANS. I’M EXCITED TO SEE THIS. I’M EXCITED FOR MY KIDS TO SEE THIS. A FAMILY OF FOUR CAN COME IN HERE FOR UNDER $50, AND EAT, MULTIPLE TIMES THIS SUMMER. Reporter: THE OWNER SAYS WITH GREAT SUPPORT LIKE THIS, HE HOPES THE FRANCHISE BREAKS IN IN ITS SECOND YEAR. SOME ARE HERE FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME. ANYWHERE FOR BASEBALL. Reporter: BUT, DIANE IS HERE FOR HER SON. IN A STADIUM BY O’HARE AND ALL OF ITS AIR TRAFFIC, HE WAS PART OF IT. FLYING IN FROM OREGON TO CATCH AND PITCH OVER THE WEEKEND. AND CATCHING HIM OFF GUARD. CAN I HAVE YOUR AUTOGRAPH? Reporter: THIS HUG IS A SAMPLE OF HOW FANS HAVE EMBRACED THE CLUB SO FAR. I’M ACTUALLY THINKING ABOUT COMING BACK. ABSOLUTELY. Reporter: FAMILY ACTIVITIES AND THE KIND OF FOOD GETTING FANS IN THE BASEBALL MOOD, WITH ONLY ONE SPECIFIC CHICAGO DOG REQUEST. NO KETCHUP ON A CHICAGO DOG. Reporter: THOUGH SOME ARE WILLING TO BREAK THAT RULE. A NIGHT AT THE PARK, A FRANCHISE, FANS, AND ONE FAMILY MAY NEVER FORGET. I LOVE YOU. Reporter: THE CHICAGO DOGS ARE SET TO HOST 50 GAMES THROUGH LABOR DAY. IN ROSEMONT, JEREMY ROSS, CBS 2
