At a Glance

Join the 2016 World Series champion Chicago Cubs and their legion of fans as we both celebrate and look to the future of this storied franchise - and it all begins in the intimate and casual atmosphere of Arizona’s Cactus League. Study the game’s history with a member of the Society for American Baseball Research, enjoy tall tales of legends past and discuss Cubs’ greats like Ryne Sandberg, surrounded by like-minded Cub fans with long histories of rooting for their team. The Cubs’ Sloan Park is the newest spring training complex in the Cactus League, a destination in its own right.
