Hello, Cubs fans out there! I hope everyone is having a blessed day and excited for the upcoming baseball season.

Check out the latest news, photos, and tidbits from spring training with the Cubbies with our latest edition of Cubs News and Notes.

We will try to have this feature a few times a week so everyone gets a summary of what is happening regularly at Cubs camp.

Let's get right all the Cubs notes!

The Cubs are in their classic home whites for their photo day. Good pics by Cubs beat writer Jordan Bastion.

Ian Happ had a breakout season in 2020 and should be even better in 2021. Check out some highlights below:

I had never seen this rare throwback box score. It is of Sandy Koufax's perfect game against the Cubs on Sept. 9th, 1965.
