The Mesa Cubs are one of the Chicago Cubs' minor league teams, playing in Fitch Park, which is just south of HoHoKam Park in Mesa, a suburb of Phoenix. The Cubs have trained in Mesa for the last 10 years, so they've got a ton of fans over there. Perhaps more than the Diamondbacks do.
Tonight and tomorrow, HoHoKam will be hosting a viewing party for the Cubs-Diamondbacks games. And they're even allowing D-Backs fans to come!
Hohokam serves as the Cactus League home for the Cubs, who usually lead the league in attendance, so expect a lot of Cub fans at the event. Cubs memorabilia will be available, but Diamondbacks fans also are welcome.
"The city is happy to provide a low-cost, family-oriented option to watch the game," said Dave Dunne, Hohokam Stadium director. "It's like going to a drive-in and watching a baseball game."
We know the D-Backs have a lot of loyal fans ... but we can't imagine a big viewing party for Angels fans out at Lake Quinsigamond in Worcester.
