The Cubs want to build a stadium for Spring Training in Arizona and the plan calls for all the Cactus League teams that hold Spring Training in Arizona to “bankroll the $84 million stadium though ticket surcharges.” The Sox don’t want to do so, since they didn’t get help from the other teams when they were building their Spring Training stadium in Arizona (the Camelback ranch that opened last year).

The Diamondbacks are also opposed.

NOTE: The freeloaders tag refers to all the teams that seek public money to pay for their stadiums.

UPDATE: Sullivan: “The Cubs believe the surcharge is fair because of all the business they bring to the Cactus League.”
