Chicago, IL - The Chicago Cubs Thursday announced a change in their 2014 schedule in consideration of the annual Chicago Pride Parade on Sunday, June 29.

The game scheduled for Sunday, June 29, against the Washington Nationals at Wrigley Field has been moved to Saturday, June 28, as part of a separate admission, day-night doubleheader.

The first game of the doubleheader will be played at 12:05 p.m. The second game is scheduled to start at 6:15 p.m. There will be no game Sunday, June 29.

44th Ward Alderman Tom Tunney made the request because of concerns over neighborhood traffic and congestion during the parade, which drew over one million people to the Lakeview neighborhood last year.
