sloan park mesa cubs marqueeThree months.

Just three short months. You can do it.

That’s how long you’ve got to wait until you see the Chicago Cubs playing another baseball game – another good reason to make a deep run in the playoffs, eh?

The Cubs have released their Spring Training schedule for 2017, and the team’s first Cactus League game in Mesa, Arizona is on February 25 – and there are actually two games, as it’s a split squad day. As of today, the Cubs’ schedule includes a whopping 37 games, 5 more than when last year’s schedule first came out. Split squad or exhibition games are sometimes added as Spring Training approaches, but I wouldn’t expect too many to be added this time around. That’s already an extremely full slate.



Individual game tickets for the 2017 Chicago Cubs home spring training games at Sloan Park will go on sale Saturday, January 7 at 11 a.m. CT at the Sloan Park ticket office, on www.cubs.com or by calling 1-800-THE-CUBS. For season ticket and group ticket information please visit www.sloanpark.com or call 1-800-THE-CUBS.

The full Cubs schedule, including the annual trip to Las Vegas, a couple games against World Baseball Classic teams, and an exhibition trip to Houston to close things out, is below.
