The cubs spring training camp is at Hohokam park in Mesa Arizona.


When I was at Miramar in the early 70's it was a Naval Aviation base for the F14 Tomcats of the "Top Gun" fame. Now I understand it is a Marine Corp aviation base.

Rob, that was GREAT!   I didn't know the Cubbies went to Catalina for Spring Training.  Wowie, they have been going there for a LONG time!  Thanks so much for sharing this.  I loved the old film too!

If they were still going there for spring training, I would love to take a trip to see them. When I was in the navy back in the early 70's stationed at Miramar,  I would go to Padre games that the Cubs would visit in San Diego's Jack Murphy Stadium. At that time I did not know that the Cubs in earlier history had spring training at Catalina Island, if I had known I would have traveled there to check it out. It would have been just a short boat ride away.
