Departing from the revitalized Chicago River Esplanade, the European-inspired ship is fully glass-enclosed and ready to show you the city from a whole new perspective.

Chicago Dogs – Winnipeg Goldeyes

Game Starts at 7:00 pm

The Chicago Dogs in their second season are the newest team of the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball.  The visiting team will be the Winnipeg Goldeyes, two time league champions and one of the leading teams in the league.  The seats will be in the infield box area of the 2 year old Impact Field, which has the huge advantage of being a short walk (0.7 miles) from the convention hotel.


The NSE Board has commissioned a very unique special run car from Atlas Model RR to mark this event.  The car can be reserved at time of purchase of tickets for the baseball game.  Redemption of the special run car ticket will be available to baseball event ticket holders on Saturday morning at the swap meet.


Final price on this special run car TBA.
