The Cubs announced they will hold their second ''Road to Wrigley'' minor-league game, set for Aug. 9 -- a Sunday -- at 1:20 p.m. featuring the Class AAA Iowa Cubs against the Las Vegas 51s, the Toronto Blue Jays' top affiliate. This will be considered an official Pacific Coast League game.

The Cubs say the game -- featuring ''family-friendly ticket prices -- will include all the atmosphere of a traditional minor-league contest. Tickets are available at www.cubs.com and start at $5. 

Last season, the first ''Road to Wrigley'' on July 29 between the Cubs' Class A Peoria Chiefs and the Oakland Athletics' Kane County Cougars drew 32,103 fans to Wrigley Field for an official Midwest League game.
