FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) --- If you own a sports bar, you hope to be crushed with customers over the next four days, as the NCAA basketball tourney fires up.

Wrigley Field Bar and Grill in the Georgetown area has 55 television sets, and starting Thursday, most of them will be tuned into the action from sites around the country.

Wrigley Field figures to see double its normal business this weekend.

Danny White/Wrigley Field Owner: " You'll see people that will come from different rooms, just to get everybody together, just to watch the end of the game. Yeah, it's a lot of fun, like I said the camaraderie of everybody just getting together as a group, and you meet new people, it's really a lot of fun."

Champions Sports Bar downtown says it has a group of about 130 people coming in after noon Thursday, to dine and watch the early round games.
