Chicago Cubs' new spring training stadium has name

Posted: Updated:

MESA, Ariz. (AP) -- The new spring training stadium for the Chicago Cubs is being called Cubs Park for now.

Unlike their contract for Hohokam Stadium and two previous city sites, the Cubs control naming rights for the new ballpark.

Chicago's general manager for spring-training business operations, Justin Piper, says the park's name could change.

The inaugural game at the ballpark will be Feb. 27 against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Mesa plans a Jan. 25 public grand opening for the stadium and park.

City voters in 2010 approved a $99 million outlay of public money for the stadium complex, a redo of next-door Riverview Park and infrastructure.
