For those visiting HoHoKam this spring

I’m not going but I know a few who are. Carrie Muskat and her staff have put together a Cubs Spring Training Fan Guide. Very handy if you are lucky enough to go see the Cubs in Spring Training.

Even how to make it easier to get autographs.

A lot of fans camp at the entrance to the Fitch Park facility and hope players will stop to sign from their cars. The players have a schedule during the workouts, so don’t be discouraged if they don’t sign during practice. Once the games begin at HoHoKam, the seats along the right-field line are best for the Cubs — that’s where their dugout is — and many fans wait by the players’ parking lot.


Of course, this is coming from someone who has a press pass. I think I’d rather hear it from the fan’s perspective.

Nevertheless, some good all-around info.

Muskat also submits a good Cubs 2007 preview including projected lineups, rotation and bullpen as well as write-ups on key players.

Dang, I refresh my browser over and over and Soriano still shows up in the leadoff spot.

  1. Actually, we have 8 games in 6 days and none of them are at HoHoKam. Two games at LAA (I laid down the law) and one each at MIL, OAK, SD, KC, CWS and COL.

    We see the CUBS twice, but both games are on the road.

    Teddy Ballgame is there a couple of days early. I hope he doesn’t drink all the Frosty Old Styles. Maybe he’ll go see the Cubs (Yeah, riiiight!!!).
