Chicago Cubs

Sloan Park

Mesa, AZ

Year Opened: 2014

Capacity: 15,000

Grade: 93.5 Ranking: AZ: #3/10; Overall: #3/24*

***IMPORTANT NOTE: Ratings and ranking have now been posted based on attendance at 2018 spring training.  New reviews have not been written, and most reviews from 2011 will be partially rewritten.  Photos will be added soon.

*Note: There are 23 spring training ballparks, as 7 complexes are shared by two teams.  For the “Fan Support” score, I usually just split the difference, as differences in fan support don’t fundamentally alter the ballpark experience.  I found only one exception: Roger Dean Stadium, where the Cardinals (arguably possessing the best fanbase) and the Marlins (some would say the worst) play.  Thus, I split those two scores, which is why there are 24 different ballparks graded overall.
