Today the Chicago Cubs sent out an message to all Cubs spring training season ticket holders announcing the 2017 Spring Training schedule. I’ve included the text from the official press release below. We expect Spring Training to be packed this year, even more so than normal, so be sure to get your arrangements set well in advance to avoid what will certainly be a crazy scene in Arizona over the month of March. Hope to see you there!
