Use Your Starpoints To Play Softball at the Chicago Cubs Wrigley Field

2018 Chicago Marathon lottery
Written by Charlie

Use your SPG Starpoints to have a chance to play softball on the World Series champion Chicago Cubs home field! Get behind the scenes access or more!


It’s baaack! A very popular SPG package (well, several) has made a return for 2017. If you are a MLB fan, particularly a Cub fan, these packages will have some excellent value for you!

Use Your Starpoints To Play Softball at Chicago Cubs Wrigley Field

Like in past year’s, there are two separate packages for you to try for. One is an auction that let’s you build your own softball team and the other is an outright purchase that let’s you just grab 2 spots on a team without bidding.

Bid For Your Very Own Softball Team

This auction just went up today so the bidding hasn’t ramped up – yet! It will go up but if you are interested in it, keep an eye on it. Here are the details about what you get:

  • Twelve (12) spots to play softball* at Wrigley Field on Sunday, 30 July 2017
  • Customized Chicago Cubs jerseys for twelve (12)
  • Chance to meet with retired Cubs alumni for twelve (12)
  • Behind-the-scenes tour of Wrigley Field for twelve (12)
  • Complimentary food and beverages for twelve (12)

Here are the auction details:

  • End Date: 7 Jul 2017 – 10:00 AM EDT
  • Starting Bid: 1,000 Starpoints
  • Bid Increment: 500 Starpoints
  • Current High Bid: 1,000 Starpoints

Certainly a nice package if you have 11 other people you would like to team up with to take a stab at winning the grand prize – Starpoints!

This one is simpler – just redeem 15,000 Starpoints for 2 spots on a softball team. Here is what you get for those 15,000 points:

  • Two (2) tickets to play softball* at Wrigley Field on Sunday, 30 July 2017
  • Behind-the-scenes tour of Wrigley Field for two (2)
  • Chance to meet with retired Cubs alumni for two (2)
  • Complimentary food and beverage for two (2)

There are no game tickets but this is still a pretty nice package for any baseball lover, but especially a Cub fan for that kind of fun and access. Paying 7,500 per person (times 2) isn’t that bad!

Here are the package redemption details:

  • Location: Chicago, Illinois, United States
    Date: 30 Jul, 2017
    Time: 12:00 PM CDT
  • Packages Available: 30
  • Tickets Per Package: 2
  • Redeem By: 11 Jul 2017 – 10:00 AM EDT


This is one of the great things about SPG’s Starpoints – you can use hotel points for an experience that puts you on a Major League Baseball field playing softball! That is a pretty cool thing and one that SPG members enjoy participating in every year. If that is you, I would grab the package for 2 tickets soon to make sure you will be there. Otherwise, if your friend list is long enough and your Starpoint balance deep enough, try for the whole thing by putting your own team together!

  • The price has gone up over the years.
    2,500; 7,500; 10,000; and now 15,000. But we are going again…

    • Yes. Prices have gone up. The value is lower now for the package. But the Cubs are more popular and if you have the points, it is a fun event.
