Cubs fans lined up Wednesday to get their hands on those coveted tickets.

They showed up at Wrigley Field early. Each person was issued a wrist band with a number on it. That determines their pecking order to purchase individual game tickets when they go on sale this Friday.

The system is to prevent fans from camping out at the ballpark.

Wrist bands will be distributed until 10 p.m. Wednesday and again Thursday starting at 7 a.m.
