The Cubs and Mesa, AZ agreed to a 30 year stadium deal that will pave the way for a new Spring training home, entertainment complex and retail facilities. Check out the story and artists renderings here.
This may or may not be a good deal for the city of Mesa. There has already been some tension in the process with more likely to come. I'm sure residents have differing views of the project. As a Cubs fan and lover of all things baseball I can say that Mesa, AZ is now on my list of future vacation sites. The complex should be ready for Spring Training in 2014.
