CHICAGO, May 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Morton Salt and the Chicago Cubs are throwing a double birthday party May 17 – "Morton Salt Girl Day at Wrigley Field" – to celebrate the centennials of the two American icons this year.

Fans are invited to join in on the festivities at Wrigley Field, which include giveaways and photo opportunities with the Morton Salt Girl.

"Morton Salt is thrilled to team up with the Chicago Cubs this year to celebrate the centennials of our brand icons – the Morton Salt Girl and Wrigley Field," said Shayn Wallace, Vice President, Consumer and Industrial Businesses, Morton Salt, Inc. "Like baseball, the Morton Salt Girl is an American original and will continue to inspire and enrich our lives for many years to come."
