The team is scheduled to arrive to spring training in early February before games begin in the middle of the month. The full slate of spring training games includes 35 games, including two games in Las Vegas, Nevada against the Texas Rangers.
Of the 35 spring training games, 17 will be Cactus League home games for the Cubs at HoHoKam Park in Mesa, Arizona. It will be the last season at HoHoKam for the Cubs before the team moves to a new facility in Mesa in 2014.
The Diamondbacks, White Sox, Twins, Indians, Rockies, Royals, Angels, Dodgers, Brewers, Athletics, Padres, Giants, Mariners and Rangers are the other 14 teams in the Cactus League. The Cubs finished the 2012 Cactus League with a 17-16 record.
