Usually, spring-training schedule information dribbles in through October and November; last year's spring-training schedule post went up on November 18.
If you're ready for more Cubs baseball -- and who isn't? -- here's the schedule for 2015 spring training, comprising 29 Cactus League games, 15 at Cubs Park in Mesa and 14 on the road. The team says "additional games are expected to be announced in the future." That could mean the annual trip to Las Vegas, or dates on the final weekend before Opening Day. Last year the Cubs played a pair of games at Chase Field against the Diamondbacks; that could happen again, or they could play somewhere else, or not at all.
2015 will also mean the return of HoHoKam Park, the Cubs' former spring-training home, as the spring home of the Oakland Athletics. The Cubs are scheduled to play the A's there March 24; it will be strange to go back there as a visiting team's fan.
The Cubs have just two split-squad games listed on this schedule; that's a bit unusual due to the odd number of teams in the Cactus League, which usually means at least five or six split-squad dates. As noted, there could be more games added to this schedule later.
Individual game tickets for the 2015 Chicago Cubs home spring training games at Cubs Park will go on sale Saturday, January 10 at 11 a.m. CT at the Cubs Park ticket office, on www.cubs.com or by calling 1-800-THE-CUBS. For season ticket and group ticket information please visit www.cubs.com/mesa or call 1-800-THE-CUBS.
There are some game times available as noted below; I'll add the rest to this schedule when they become available. When times do get posted, please note: For the first three dates on this schedule, through Saturday, March 7, games generally start at 2:05 CST; from Sunday, March 8 through the end of spring training they'll be at 3:05 CDT, as Daylight Saving Time begins that day. Exceptions will be noted. Home games in boldface. Here's a handy countdown page to the first game (assuming it's at 2:05 CT, which it likely will be).
Here's the complete schedule. All games are at 1:05 Arizona time (2:05 CT through Saturday, March 7 and 3:05 CT from Sunday, March 8 forward as Daylight Saving time begins) except as noted. (ss) denotes split squad.
