In January 2014, Michael Erin joined Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance (LVGEA) as a global initiatives manager. Away from the office, Michael Erin likes watching baseball, and he avidly supports the Chicago Cubs.
After 62 years at Hohokam Stadium in Mesa, Arizona, the Chicago Cubs moved their spring training home to Cubs Park, also located in Mesa. The new facility, which opened in February 2014, was designed to resemble Chicago’s famous Wrigley Field, complete with a brick backstop and Chicago-style hot dogs. Able to seat 15,000 fans, the stadium’s proportions mirror that of its Midwest inspiration, which celebrates its 100th birthday this year. The Phoenix New Times recently named Cubs Park as the “Best Place to Watch Spring Training. Among its other amenities, Cubs Park is within walking distance of the Mesa Riverview shopping, dining, and entertainment center.
The Cubs will start the 2015 Cactus League spring training season on March 5th at home against the Oakland Athletics. For ticket information, please visit chicago.cubs.mlb.com.
