Presidents’ Day Weekend at Cubs Park

By Tim Sheridan
February 18, 2014

Some things I saw at Cubs Park over the past Presidents’ Day weekend: Mesa Mayor Scott Smith chatting with Cubs fans while watching workouts, sunshine and plenty of it, a $58 Cubs T-shirt at the stadium team store, and fathers with sons tossing baseballs around many of the grassy spots available at Cubs Park/Riverview Park. What a fine weekend it was. I’m excited about the Cubs first full-squad workout tomorrow!

I’ve had many people ask about the accessibility of Cubs spring camp at Cubs Park, in particular the workouts before the spring training games start. So I thought I would post this info straight from the Cubs spring training season ticket package:


Practice and workouts will be held in the Cubs Park complex, just west of the ballpark. Practice times vary throughout Spring Training. The first full-squad workout will be held Wednesday, February 19. The entire facility is open to fans to enjoy except the primary ballpark, which will only be open for games. There will not be a charge for parking on days where there are only workouts. 

Here are some of my photos from the long weekend.
