Today the Chicago Cubs unveiled a bit of a whacky promotion that will allow a fan to work at home plate – literally at home plate on Wrigley Field – as part of a random drawing of folks who’ve bought Cubs tickets.
Ditch your virtual background for the real thing! You could be the lucky winner to work from home plate at Wrigley Field.

I would love this. I mean, I just work on a laptop all day anyway, so why not from Wrigley Field? I could steal a couple bases in between posts, tweet from inside the ivy, grab a little rosin if my fingers get slippery on the keys.
The full announcement:
The Chicago Cubs today launched the “Work from Home Plate” sweepstakes where one lucky winner will get the chance to change up their virtual work environment and work from home plate at Wrigley Field. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is open to all Cubs fans who purchase single game tickets to regular season home games through the remainder of the 2021 season starting today, June 15, through Saturday, July 31.
Cubs fans who purchase tickets from June 15-July 31 will automatically be entered to win a chance to work from home plate at Wrigley Field. Access to work from home plate with the Wrigley Field scoreboard as the background will be granted for 60 minutes for the winner and one guest. The winner will be randomly selected and notified on or around Saturday, August 7, and will have the opportunity to work from home plate at Wrigley Field Monday, August 23, from 9-10 a.m. CDT.
