At a Glance

From curse to dynasty – is it possible? 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, sing along with the official organist of the Arizona Diamondbacks, enjoy tall tales of legends past and discuss Cubs’ greats like Ryne Sandberg. In 2014, the Cubs opened their new baseball complex in Mesa, a destination in its own right.

Best of all, you'll ...

  • Enjoy a variety of ballparks and “America’s Favorite Pastime” during four spring training games.
  • Meet retired players (including a former Cub) and hear from a sportswriter on how he conveys the beat of the game.
  • Go behind the scenes of one of major league baseball’s most innovative ballparks, Chase Field, regular-season home of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

General Notes

Lunch during day games or dinner during night games on your own at the ball parks. Schedule permitting enjoy at least 3 games with your team, 4 total. It is rare that teams take a day off in spring training, but if it should occur we will substitute another game of interest. Arizona is a sunny state so please note that while we request seats in the shade, we occasionally will be in the sun. For best group seating, register by December 15.
