Cubs spring park sees major revenue in inaugural season

The Chicago Cubs saw more than 218,000 fans walk through the turnstiles of their new spring home in Mesa. They sold nearly as many hot dogs.

The Phoenix Business Journal broke down the numbers of the park's revenue figures, and peripheral measures, in a story published Wednesday.

To wit, Mesa brought back $600,000 of the $99 million it dished out to build the stadium just in sales taxes.

Meanwhile, Cubs Park provided 412 jobs and were the impetus for the construction of an adjacent Sheraton Hotel, which has 170 rooms.

An average crowd of over 14,000 consumed 49,674 hot dogs and 10,705 soft pretzels over the course of the Cactus League season.
