CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) - A dead of winter tradition for one side of town’s diehard baseball fans will return.

In a brief video posted to Twitter on Wednesday, the Cubs announced that their fan convention will be held in January of 2023.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the franchise chose the last two offseasons to not have the event. The last convention took place in January of 2020 at the Sheraton Grand Chicago.

Besides the dates-January 13-15-, the Cubs did not release any other details. However, they are encouraging interested fans to register online for email updates, which will include when tickets go on sale.

The Cubs Convention first began in 1986 and, with its player autograph sessions and interactive discussions, has consistently sold out.
