CHICAGO – The Chicago Cubs today announced plans to raise a flag in honor of the 10,000th win in franchise history. The 10,000th-win flag, along with the Cubs “W” flag, will go up this afternoon and be flown atop the Wrigley Field scoreboard for the duration of the current Cubs road trip.

The 10,000th-win flag will be taken down Tuesday, April 29 prior to the 7:05 game against the Milwaukee Brewers at Wrigley Field and autographed by the entire team. Starting April 30, the flag will be auctioned exclusively on with all proceeds benefiting Cubs Care.

“The Chicago Cubs are honored to be only the second club in Major League Baseball history to reach the 10,000th-win plateau. With the auction of this historic flag, we want to turn this great franchise win into a big win for the community and Cubs Care,” stated Matt Wszolek, director of sales and promotions.

The Cubs reached 10,000 wins with a 7-6 victory last night in Colorado.

For more information or to take part in the auction, please visit beginning Wednesday, April 30.
