#Cubs spring report dates

Cubs pitchers and catchers report to Mesa, Ariz., on Feb. 19, and the first workout will be the next  day. Position players are to report Feb. 23 and the first full squad workout will be the next day. Major League Baseball announced the reporting and workout dates.

This will be the Cubs’ third year at their new complex in Mesa, Ariz. The first Cactus League game will be played March 3 when the Cubs travel to Maryvale, Ariz., to face the Brewers. The first home spring game is March 4 when the Cubs play host to the Angels at Sloan Park.

*Congrats to Pat Hughes, the radio voice of the Cubs,  who was named Illinois Sportscaster of the Year by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association.

Yes, thanks. I made the correction

Way to go, Pat! He’s always been one of my favorites. Think back to those recent seasons of 90-to-100-game losses. Pat never lost his enthusiasm and humor. Okay, he may have worn out some of the jokes and broadcast-booth “shtick.” Looking forward to Pat and Ron — and Len and JD — in 2016.

Aloha folks, we as Cubs fans are blessed to have Pat Hughes, “Omedetou!” I will say, miss his side-kick…Santo-san. Mahalo!
