The brutal cold has tested the resolve of Chicagoans, but we have some good news for baseball fans seeking solace from the frigid weather.
The Cubs, who have made the playoffs in each of the last three years, will begin selling tickets in a presale on Friday morning, and will put tickets on sale to the general public at 11 a.m. on Saturday morning.
The team’s first spring training game is scheduled for Feb. 24 against the Texas Rangers at Sloan Park.
Meanwhile, the White Sox will celebrate the 10th anniversary of Camelback Ranch in style this spring, with several new additions to their home ballpark. A new scoreboard is in place for the spring season, and additional shade structures have also been set up at the notoriously sunny ballpark, according to the park’s management.
Tickets for White Sox home games at Camelback Ranch will go on sale Friday morning at 11 a.m. Central time, with their first home game scheduled for Feb. 25 against the Cincinnati Reds.
The Cubs and White Sox will play against each other at Camelback Ranch on Mar. 16, and at Sloan Park on Feb. 27 and Mar. 10.
