February 25, 2014
The Chicago Cubs will celebrate their first game in their new spring training facility, Cubs Park in Mesa, Ariz., on February 27th. The complex includes six practice fields, a new clubhouse and training facility and a 15,000 person capacity ballpark adjacent to Riverview Park.
The new facility, designed by Populous, has been noted for capturing the charm and intimacy of Wrigley Field. The Arizona Republic notes that the “newest gem” of a ballpark offers “abundant shade and architectural similarities to Chicago’s iconic Wrigley Field.” Read more about the complex here.
