Cubs World Series trophy in Springfield March 8

SPRINGFIELD – The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum welcomes the Chicago Cubs Trophy Tour, presented by State Farm, Wednesday, March 8.

Fans will be able to see a piece of baseball history – the 2016 World Series Trophy – and take pictures with it from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. The event is free.

The ALPLM (212 N. Sixth Street, Springfield) will begin distributing wristbands at 12:30 p.m. The first 500 fans in line will receive a wristband to guarantee their ability to see the trophy. Additional fans will be accommodated as time permits. Fans with wristbands should remain in line until the event begins. 

Only one wristband will be given to each person. Visitors must bring their own camera or cell phone. A Cubs staffer will use that camera to take one picture of each person.

Fans and visitors can park at the ALPLM parking structure at the corner of Sixth and Madison Streets. The rates are .75 cents per half-hour or $9.75 per day. 

No shelter will be provided overnight or during the day of the event until fans are admitted at 12:30, so fans should dress appropriately for the weather.

Fans will be asked to line up along Sixth Street, starting at the doors on the southwest side of the museum building. People are encouraged to stay near the building and away from any traffic or other pedestrians.

No food, large bags, chairs or similar items are allowed in the museum.

All trophy and event related questions should be referred to Chicago Cubs Fan Services at 1-800-THE-CUBS or 1-888-THE-CUBS. Interested media can obtain press credentials by contacting ALPLM Communications Director Chris Wills at

On March 24, the Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum will open its latest exhibit, “Cubs vs. Cardinals: The Rivalry.”
