The Chicago Cubs won their first World Series since 1908, and fans have been flocking to Sloan Park, Arizona to cheer on their team as they try to defend their World Series Championship.
The Cubs sets a major league record for spring game attendance as 226,933 fans [over 15K per game] gathered to watch their team go 11-17 in Cactus League action. The Cubs also played two exhibition games against World Baseball Classic teams which would put their attendance totals to 251,899 according to ESPN's Jesse Rogers.
The regular season will finally start in four days as the Cubs will face their rival St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday night at Busch Stadium.
