Teams of 10 will compete in nine "innings" of trivia for a grand prize, not to mention bragging rights. The night will also feature a silent auction to win tickets, fan gear, and memorabilia from your favorite Chicago area teams. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; trivia starts at 7:15 p.m.

So don your lucky jersey, gather some friends, and register your team. The cost is $275 per team of 10 includes an all-you-can-eat salad and pizza buffet. A cash bar will also be available.

All proceeds benefit the operating fund of the Mount Prospect Historical Society.

The society maintains the 1906 Dietrich Friedrichs house museum and carriage house and an ADA-accessible education center. It's also in the midst of an adaptive restoration of the 1896 one-room Central School.
