About the RIC Cubs

The RIC Cubs is a cross-disability, competitive wheelchair softball team that competes in tournaments locally and nationally. The RIC Cubs is a member of the National Wheelchair Softball Association and is the first wheelchair softball program to be sponsored by a major league baseball team.

About Wheelchair Softball

Wheelchair softball is played on hard surface parking lots under the official rules of 16-inch slow pitch softball as approved by the Amateur Softball Association of America with certain exceptions, as outlined by the National Wheelchair Softball Association. The RIC Wheelchair Cubs compete locally and nationally during the summer season.

About RIC Cubs' home field

In June 2003, the Chicago Park District, made possible with the support of Cubs Care, the Mayor's Office for People with Disabilities, the Baseball Tomorrow Fund and the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, opened the first state-of-the-art, fully wheelchair-accessible softball field in the state of Illinois. The RIC Cubs are proud to be able to call this field home and welcome visitors to come out to view practices and games held at the field.
