Strike! Jon Lester and the 2016 World Series Champion Chicago Cubs will be hosting National League rivals Los Angeles Dodgers at Wrigley Field on April. 10th at 8pm EST. Once the festivities are finished, the Cubs will send Jon Lester to the mound against the Los Angeles Dodgers, who lost to Chicago in the NL Championship Series a year ago.
On Nov. 2, Chicago defeated the Cleveland Indians 8-7 to win the 2016 World Series in seven games.
The team will have its ring ceremony on Wednesday.
The recurring gold theme seems to be ever plenty at Wrigley Field for the series home opener. The bullpens, formerly located down the first-base and third-base lines, were moved beneath the bleachers during the offseason.

It is joined by a new multi-story building featuring administrative offices, a flagship merchandise store, a Starbucks Reserve, and an upcoming "tavern-style" restaurant.
