It’s a big baseball day at Sloan Park in Mesa, as Cubs Pitchers and Catchers report today for spring training. As you probably know, many of the Cubs players have already been working out at the Cubs facility in Arizona. I posted a couple videos on Twitter and Facebook, one showing Jason Heyward, Kyle Schwarber, and other players working out, and a video of Javier Baez making a leaping catch in the outfield. Pitchers and Catchers will start official team workouts tomorrow.
However, that isn’t the only baseball at Sloan Park today as the Northwestern University Wildcats take on the University of Nevada Wolf Pack in a doubleheader to kick-off both teams 2016 baseball season’s. Those games will be played on the Sloan Park Stadium Field and start at 2 PM, and 6 PM local Arizona time. The two schools will also play tomorrow evening at 6 pm, and Sunday morning at 11 am (AZ times). I’ll be doing the P.A. Announcing for all four games. So, if you want to see plenty of baseball this weekend, come on down to Sloan Park!
