Between the 15,000-seat ballpark and 7 practice fields, Chicago Cubs fans will be closer than ever to the Spring Training action they've always coveted. Located on what was once a golf course, recycled sod and replanted trees were used throughout the 140-acre complex. The park plays host to numerous Cactus Leage games, while additional action can be seen on side practice fields throughout Spring Training. Sloan Park will offer fans affordable price points for watching their favorite team, with ticket prices ranging from $9-$40.
