cacti mesaIt doesn’t have quite the pizzazz of pitchers and catchers reporting, since they come first, and since many positional player arrive at that time, too. But, hey, it’s a thing: today is reporting day for Chicago Cubs positional players. Many are already in camp, but a chunk won’t be arriving until today.

The first full squad workout is tomorrow, and they’ll play some intrasquad games a few days thereafter.

Opening Day in the Cactus League for the Cubs is February 27 against the Diamondbacks, and that game will be the first at new Cubs Park in Mesa, Arizona.
