Cubs reward graduates with a pre-game parade and a piece of paper

In Unobstructed Views by Obstructed View Staff39 Comments

The Cubs have set up a new promotion that doesn’t really promote anything.  The relevant story is here. Based on this promotion, the recent graduates can participate in a “special pre-game graduation parade (weather permitting) on the warning track to recognize {their} recent accomplishment” and “also receive a certificate commemorating this spectacular event.”  The two games are on June 1 against …
