I took my dog, Henry, out this morning and boy was it freezing. It wasn’t quite the “colder than Mars” cold we had a few weeks ago, but damn. Hopefully my dog never has to relieve himself again … or at least until March.
Because by then, the WORLD SERIES CHAMPION Chicago Cubs will be starting Spring Training games!
Indeed, the first game of Spring Training is less than two months away, and you can start buying your tickets as soon as this weekend!
The Chicago Cubs have announced that the general sale for single game tickets to Cubs Spring Training games at Sloan Park in Mesa, Arizona, begins this Saturday, January 7, at 11 a.m. CST.
Moreover, there is an online MasterCard pre-sale event that begins Friday, January 6 from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. where you can buy tickets in advance – for a premium. If you use a MasterCard card, you can purchase tickets at a 15% premium, whereas any other form of payment is a 20% premium.
The Cubs open Spring Training both home and away, in a split squad match-up against the San Francisco Giants and the Oakland Athletics, on Saturday, February 25! Put differently, CUBS BASEBALL STARTS NEXT MONTH. You can see the full schedule here.
Tickets may be purchased online at www.cubs.com, over the phone at 800-THE-CUBS (800-843-2827) or in person at the Sloan Park ticket office from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. MST. There is a limit of six tickets per game and a maximum of four games per order.
