Cubs fans might get to watch a wild-card game at Wrigley Field after all.

Chicago is three-and-half games back of the Pirates for the top wild-card spot, but according to The Chicago Sun-Times’ Gordon Wittenmyer, the team is considering showing the game at Wrigley Field if it’s played in Pittsburgh.

Tickets would be sold to season ticket holders first, then to the public at a fixed price, according to a report from the Chicago Tribune. Proceeds from the Oct. 7 event would go to charity, the report said.

The Cubs installed LED video boards in right and left field prior to this season. The left-field board is 3,990 square feet.
