Our former associate editor Matt Lindner has unearthed a cool little cool thing the Cubs are doing: offering a Groupon (for the low price of $30,000) for a fan to throw out the first pitch before a ballgame, along with some other assorted perks.

The Groupon, which is still available and has just one total offer, will give a Cubs fan a memorable experience that goes beyond just throwing out the first pitch before the game, scheduled for August 30th against the Brewers. In addition to throwing out the first pitch, the buying fan will get to watch the game in a suite along with 14 friends (and a former Cubs player) with free, unlimited food and drink, watch batting practice before the game on the field, have a mock press conference, and take a personal tour of Wrigley Field, among other smaller perks.

This is a pretty cool experience for a fan, and the best part of it all is that if anyone buys the $30,000 package, the proceeds are going to the Chicago Cubs Charities. This is an awesome looking experience if you're in the area and have money to burn.

The offer will end at midnight central time on August 26th, so fans still have time to potentially get friends to pool some money together and take advantage of this.
