7/17 New Spring Training site underway
In case you missed it, Cubs owners Tom and Laura Ricketts joined Mesa, Ariz., city and community leaders at a groundbreaking ceremony July 11 for the team’s new Spring Training facility. The new stadium will hold 15,000 people, and the facility was expected to be completed by Spring Training 2014. The Cubs are taking over land which had been occupied by the Riverview Golf Course in west Mesa.
