Heavy rain is forecast.

If they go, the South Bend (Ind.) Cubs will kick off the 2015 season with a 7-inning exhibition with the University of Notre Dame tonight at 6 CST at Four Winds Field.

Scheduled for the start for the Chicago Cubs’ Class A minor league team is former Heritage High School right-hander Trevor Clifton.

“It feels good to get the first game on the hill,” he said. “I’ll just go out there and do my best and try to throw strikes.”
