For a second year, Advocate Children’s Hospital teamed up with the Chicago Cubs to give some very special pediatric patients a once-in-a-lifetime experience on the Field of Dreams. It’s all part of Catch in the Confines that was held on Father’s Day – Sunday, June 16. Fifteen patients and their families had Wrigley Field all to themselves to run the bases, catch fly balls, visit the dugout and much more.
