Millions came to see it after a 108 year wait, now Downstate Illinois gets a chance to see the Cubs World Series Trophy. The trophy will come to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield March 8th after the Cubs finish showing it off at their Cactus League/Spring Training home in Arizona. The Library/Museum's Chris Wills says the news is the result of a great working relationship with the Cubs.
The first 500 fans will receive wristbands and be assured a chance to take a picture with the trophy beginning at 12:30. Additional fans will be admitted if time permits. No shelter will be provided overnight or during the day of the event, so fans should dress appropriately for the weather.
