Spring Training Information

I noticed two things yesterday:  There were way too many cars driving around with Chicago Cubs flags sticking out the windows, and traffic around Bell & 83rd was backed up worse than it is during the Christmas shopping season.  Put these two facts together, and you don't have to be Sherlock Holmes to realize it's time for Spring Training!

The Cactus League in the Phoenix and Tucson areas is unique because it's the only place in the country with up to 8 major league games being played within a 35 mile radius. (along with 2 additional stadiums 2 hours away in Tucson)

Here's a map of the local Cactus League Stadiums:
