Chicago Cubs: What we know about Cubs Spring Training 2020
Chicago Cubs: More Spring Training 2020 news
Also worth noting, there is no idea what the heck is going on with the new Marquee Network and how that will integrate with Spring Training coverage. They may be planning live broadcasts and interviews from Sloan but there is absolutely no word as of yet.
Last season fans at the complex, were permitted to attend the workouts under former manager Joe Maddon. They were able to watch all their favorite players from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on non-game days. Whether or not that tradition will change under first-year manager David Ross is still unknown.
Speaking of old managers, Ross’ club will face their old skipper in Maddon on Mar. 2 when he visits Sloan Park with his new club, the Los Angeles Angels. On Mar. 14 the Cubs will hit the road and visit the Angels in their home digs.
Chicago opens the regular season on Thursday, Mar. 26 on the road against the Milwaukee Brewers. The home opener at the Friendly Confines is set for Monday, Mar. 30 against the Pirates.
Here are some other key MLB dates this 2020 season:
