It's cold outside, but it's not too early to start thinking about the boys of summer.

The Cubs are going to give fans a chance to buy individual game tickets before they go on sale February 19. But there's a catch.

They will cost 20 percent more than face value.

The Cubs' Web site announced the MasterCard First Chance Pre-Sale will start Monday at 10 a.m. at

A limited number of tickets will be available.
