With the chilly temperatures this past week in Chicago and all over the Midwest, watching baseball outdoors may be slightly off your radar. Never fear Cubs fans, spring training is just around the corner and single game spring tickets go on sale this Saturday for games at the brand new Cubs spring training facility.
I almost feel guilty here in Mesa enjoying day after day of 70 to 75 degree temps and abundant sunshine…almost! So take your mind off the cold, and take a sneak preview of what you will enjoy when you arrive in Mesa for a Cubs game at the new facility. Here are my photos – hot off the compact flash.
There are two sets on flickr, one is of the stadium at Cubs Park (inside and out, 56 photos) and the second is of the nearly competed beautiful new Rivervew Park (30 photos) which borders directly east of Cubs Park. I’ve added a map to each set; match the corresponding letter on the photo to see exactly where the photo was taken in the stadium and park. This new Cubs facility with Riverview next door is so vastly different than Hohokam, it will make your head swim.
So click the maps, and feel the warm sunshine and Cubs spring training! ~ T
