Class A Chicago Cubs’ minor league affiliate, the South Bend Cubs, recently announced they have achieved a Top 10 status in nationwide merchandise sales among all 160 professional minor league teams. South Bend’s close proximity to Chicago and a loyal fan base to the Chicago Cubs were all factors when the Chicago Cubs and the South Bend Cubs became affiliated in 2014. The South Bend Cubs are now one of the “hottest” teams in Minor League Baseball and the national and international sales of merchandise are giving the team unprecedented exposure.
Ancon Construction salutes and commends South Bend Cub team owner Andrew Berlin and President Joe Hart for their compassion and commitment to the team, the fan base, the City of South Bend, and the Michiana region. Ancon is proud to play a small role in the success thus far with building projects such as the Tiki Hut, the Performance Center, and other numerous projects throughout the baseball campus.
Here is what South Bend Cubs President Joe Hart is saying about Ancon Construction: “We’ve worked with Ancon in the past; we knew they could get it done. They’re great communicators and are there every step of the way. I have nothing but great things to say about Ancon. I get a lot better sleep at night knowing that Ancon is on the project. When they said they were going to do something, they did it. Not only have I worked with them on projects from a business standpoint, I have become friends with people over there too. They are people I would go and socialize with outside of a project, which says a lot about their character. I felt like they were part of our staff because the understood how important this project was to us and the community. They wanted to make sure that they did themselves proud, us proud, and ultimately the community proud.”
