Hello, Cubs fans out there! I hope everyone is having a great day.

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 several times a week, so everyone gets a summary of what is happening regularly at Cubs camp.

Let's get right to all the Cubs notes!

The Cubs looked very happy to be playing at Sloan Park on Monday afternoon:

Ian Happ was mic'd up during the telecast against the Rangers (pretty fun to watch):

Happ said that Javy Baez is the best baserunner on the team, in his opinion.

Zach Davies was impressive again this spring with three scoreless innings (SPOILER: He got the win):

Javy Baez crushed a three-run homer to center to put the Cubs up 7-0:

Youngster Chase Strumpf got into the action with a solo homer:

The Cubs ended up winning a lopsided affair with a score of 9-0:

Jake Arrieta spoke to the media Monday afternoon about being able to play in front of baseball fans at ballparks last season.

“Wrigley is such an amazing attraction for the city. To have that taken away from not only the fans and the players but local businesses, it was tough, all around the country, all around the world for a lot of people. For our sport, it hit closer to home.”

“Hopefully, we’re able to slowly get back into a situation where we can get close to capacity at Wrigley and get back to normal.”

This was HUGE news for Cubs fans around the world:
