Additionally, the Cubs have announced that they will have meet and greet opportunities with Cubs celebrities in exchange for donations to the Cubs Care charity on a limited basis at $125 for current players and $150 for former players. The cost includes an official ball and an opportunity for photos and chit chat with the player..

Also, at registration everyone will get a pull-tab card for a chance to get a guaranteed autograph opportunity.

Finally, the Cubs will let you park at Wrigley Field for the weekend for just $25, the catch being that you will have to provide your own transportation to the hotel from there.  This is probably a $20 cab ride each way.  Public transportation via the CTA red line is just ½ a block east of Wrigley Field at Addison.  The closest stop to the Sheraton is Grand and this puts you about .7 miles from the hotel.
