When the Chicago Cubs considered South Bend to move their Class A Affiliate here there were a lot of expectations.  Some of these were simple…some took a major investment like replacing the newer artificial turf with professional play quality grass.  Team owner Andrew Berlin and team president Joe Hart went a step further and envioused a hitting facility that would not only be state of the art, not only be used to strengthen the player skils in the farm system but would be a community resource to give anyone from T-Ballers to high school players a place to improve their hitting, fielding and throwing.  This was the concept behind the South Bend Cubs Performance Center.
