Opening day at Cubs Park sets Cactus League attendance record
PHOENIX -- The Chicago Cubs may not have claimed a championship in a while, but they continue to rack up the records when it comes to spring training in the Valley.
That's a record! #Cubs Park's opening game sets the all-time Cactus League attendance mark at 14,486. Thanks for your support, Cubs fans!— Chicago Cubs (@Cubs) February 27, 2014
Cubs fans have been looking forward to opening day at the park since it was unveiled to the public in late January.
Plenty of fanfare accompanied the stadium's first game, including a matchup with the hometown Arizona Diamondbacks and a special visit from Giordano's -- a legendary Chicago pizza joint -- food truck.
