Cubs mean a lot to Arizona
MESA, Ariz. -- An Indian tribe in Arizona is making a pitch to the Chicago Cubs to move their spring training sit.
Members of the Gila River Indian tribe traveled to Chicago to speak with Cubs management about moving the training to the Indian nation south of Phoenix.
The team, which currently holds spring training in Mesa, has said its in the market for a new spring training facility.
East Valley Tribune also reported that Mesa has tried to discourage other Phoenix-area cities from trying to lure the Cubs. Mesa is also dueling with cities in Florida.
A study commissioned by Mesa showed the state would lose $52 million a year if the Cubs left Mesa.

The Cubs should move to Dodgertown.
