12/10 No decision yet re: Spring Training
The Cubs Thursday denied a report that the team has made up its mind about Spring Training, and is relocating to Florida. An official decision was expected next month. The team is looking at two sites near Naples, Fla., and two sites in Arizona, including one in Mesa. The city of Mesa, meanwhile, has proposed building additional batting cages at the Cubs’ Fitch Park complex at a cost of $750,000. They would be ready in time for Spring Training this year.
