2005 Cubs Spring Training Schedule

It's 48 degrees and windy and pouring rain in Chicago today -- a perfect day to think high sky, sunshine and baseball in Arizona in March!

The Cubs released the 2005 spring training schedule today; a couple of notes: first, there will, for the first time in a couple of years, be no night games during the spring (at least in this draft, none were so indicated), and as predicted elsewhere, there will be two games in Las Vegas against the Mariners (who will serve as the home team there), on Friday, April 1, and Saturday, April 2, before the Cubs return to Phoenix to open the season against the Diamondbacks on Monday, April 4.
