SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - It’s early in the season and the South Bend Cubs minor league baseball team already has set a record.

The South Bend Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1DAu0WH ) that a record crowd of 7,575 people packed Four Winds Field on Saturday evening to watch the Cubs take on the Great Lake Loons. The previous record was 7,387 on July 3, 2013.

The team switched affiliations to the Chicago Cubs from the Arizona Diamondbacks during the offseason and changed its name from the Silver Hawks to the Cubs. Earlier this month the team set a franchise record for opening-day attendance.

Cubs President Joe Hart says the attendance number gives the team “goosebumps” because it’s so early in the year. Team owner Andrew Berlin says “it’s going to be a remarkable season.”
