9/15 Looking ahead
According to reports, Tom Ricketts, Cubs GM Jim Hendry and team chairman Crane Kenney met Monday night with Arizona officials to discuss possible improvements at the team’s Spring Training complex in Mesa, Ariz. Ricketts, the Cubs’ incoming owner, also has reportedly toured Fenway Park to see how the ballpark handles a video scoreboard. The Cubs have called Mesa their spring home since 1979. HoHoKam Park was remodeled for the 1997 season, but the team wants to update the facilities.
