Cubs fans will be able to show their support for the team at Postseason Rally 2008, to be held in downtown Chicago from 12 p.m. to 12:45 p.m. CT.
Hall of Famer Billy Williams, WGN Radio's Ron Santo and Cubs chairman Crane Kenney were scheduled to appear. Actor Jim Belushi will be the emcee and Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich and Chicago Mayor Richard Daley are expected to attend.
"Tuesday's celebration is a great way for Cubs fans to gear up for the postseason run," said Matt Wszolek, director of sales and promotions for the Cubs. "We truly have the best fans in baseball and the rally at Daley Plaza is a testament to them and the accomplishments of the 2008 Chicago Cubs."
The rally is open to the public and free of charge. It will be held, rain or shine.
