GENEVA, Ill. (AP) — The Kane County Cougars expect to welcome their 10 millionth fan to the ballpark this week.

The Chicago Cubs farm team would become the first Class A team in minor league baseball history to reach 10 million fans.

The organization expects to hit the milestone during Saturday night's game at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark in the Chicago suburb of Geneva.

The lucky fan will be greeted at the gate by mascot Ozzie T. Cougar and given gifts from the organization, including a team jersey, an autographed team bat and a 10-game customized ticket package for next season.

The Cougars are in their 23rd season.

General Manager Curtis Haug says milestones like the 10 millionth fan are "very significant and certainly worth celebrating."
