Chicago Cubs: Finding the games

Don’t expect to go to Sloan Park and find a schedule anywhere for these games.  I spent 30 minutes walking around the gates of Sloan Park only to see signs saying, “The Chicago Cubs will see you next spring.”

After searching online, I found that the Arizona League Cubs have teams playing in Mesa (Cubs 1 and Cubs 2). The AZL Cubs teams play at Sloan Park or across the street at the Under Armour Player Performance Center lighted practice fields.

With my home printed schedule in hand, I arrived at the diamond right about game time. As I turned into the stadium parking lot, there were about 10 cars in the entire lot. I parked some 20 steps from the front gate and walked into the park for the first time.
