According to this article in today's Arizona Republic, the Cubs are on pace to set a Cactus League record for attendance this spring, possibly drawing as many as 186,000.

That would break not only the Arizona record of 171,651 set by the 1999 Cubs, but it would be a record for any team in spring training -- the overall record is currently held by the 1996 Yankees, with 173,482.

And, the article also says that the entire Cactus League may set a record with 1.2 million total attendance, which would shatter the 2002 record of 1.1 million.
