In the Spring of 2017, we traveled to Mesa, AZ to watch the first 5 games of Spring Training. Their Spring Training complex, “Wrigley-ville West,” is absolutely insane for a Cubs fan. Their practice facilities are open to the public, so when you show up to watch them run drills, take BP or have meetings, it feels like your showing up to your kid’s little league game. Walk on up to the fence and carry on a chat with a player….. Say hi to a coach….. catch one of the hundreds of homers hit during BP…. or even get every single players autograph to commemorate the trip.
Sloan Park is just as cozy. There’s not a bad seat in the house. You have one helluva a view for the game from everywhere in the stadium and the food trucks on the outfield porch will keep your belly full during the afternoon double headers.
