Chicago Cubs Spring Training 2020 in Pictures

Along with every other baseball fan I am going through withdrawals. As if the winter without the game we love wasn’t enough, we are postponed for at least another month and probably more.


Fortunately I was able to get out to Arizona for the first time ever to take in some Major League Baseball Spring Training. I attended four games over six days and watched several hours of minor league instructs on the back fields at Sloan Park.

Here is my photo album of images I snapped in my six days at Cubs spring training.
