In honor of both the Cubs spring opener against the Brewers and single-game tickets going on sale Friday, the team is hosting a “#PitchIn” pop-up event at Daley Plaza from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday.

Fans will have a chance to channel their inner Jon Lester for their chance to win single-game tickets.

The game is simple: throw a pitch on target and win yourself tickets to a Cubs game this season. There will be varying levels of difficulty with the most challenging targets representing the hottest games of the season.

Do you have bad aim or have never thrown a baseball before? Former Cubs pitcher Ryan Dempster will be at the event and might be able to share a few pointers.

Cubs single-game tickets go on sale 10 a.m. Friday. Fans can purchase them online or by calling (800) THE-CUBS.
