MLB Announces Revised Spring Training Schedules – Chicago Cubs Now Open on March 1

Chicago Cubs

Today, Major League Baseball announced the revised Spring Training schedules for teams, now having the health and safety protocols in place for Spring Training. Most of the big changes came in the Grapefruit League, where travel for those Florida teams has been geographically restricted (in Arizona, most of the teams are located around the Phoenix area).

The Cubs schedule now opens up on March 1 at the Padres, with the Sloan Park home opener on March 2 against the Royals. In total, the Cubs will play 28 Spring Training games, and will have a couple days off before the regular season opens in Chicago on April 1:

The broadcast schedule for the revised Cactus League slate is not out yet, but I would tentatively expect most games to be available on Marquee and 670 The Score.

The Cubs have received approval from the City of Mesa to have 25% capacity attendance at Sloan Park this year.
