"Cold enough for you?"
I'm sure you've heard that way too many times over the last couple of days if you live in Chicago or other parts of the Midwest. Baseball isn't too far away, though. Pitchers and catchers will report to the Cubs' new spring training complex in Mesa in just 37 days (February 13) and two weeks later, Cubs Park will host its first game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
So it's just 51 days until Cubs baseball, and this Saturday, you can buy tickets. Here are the details:
Single game tickets go on sale at the Cubs Park Box Office, 2330 W. Rio Salado Parkway in Mesa, Saturday, Jan. 11, at 10 a.m. MST/11 a.m. CST. Tickets will be available at the same time by phone by calling 1-800-THE-CUBS and at the Cubs website. If you're in the area and are interested in purchasing tickets in person, you can have an opportunity to get a sneak peak at the new ballpark Jan. 11 between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.
“We’re excited about our inaugural season at Cubs Park,” said Justin Piper, general manager, Spring Training Business Operations. “This new facility is going to be a popular attraction for Cubs and baseball fans all season long. Anyone planning to visit us for games this year will want to purchase tickets early.”
Here's some more information, including a seating chart and single-game ticket prices. You'll note that there are "regular" and "marquee" games -- here's the schedule with a breakdown of which games are in each category.
Box office hours hours will be Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. MST, Jan. 11 through March 27.
