Chicago Cubs (MLB) (spring training) (2014–present)

Cubs Park is a baseball park in Mesa, Arizona which opened in 2014. Owned and operated by the Chicago Cubs, the ballpark serves as their spring training home and is also the home of the Mesa Solar Sox of the Arizona Fall League, replacing HoHoKam Stadium.[3] With a capacity of 15,000, Cubs Park becomes the largest spring training stadium by capacity in Major League Baseball, surpassing Camelback Ranch in Glendale (coincidentally, spring training home of the Cubs' in-city rival the Chicago White Sox) by 2,000 seats.[4]
