[EDITORIAL] Cubs, ASU must share stadium

The Arizona Republic

The Chicago Cubs and Arizona State University should make one final college try to settle their differences on sharing a spring-training stadium.

A lot is riding on the outcome, which is why Mesa Mayor Scott Smith wisely is trying to bring the sides together.

What many people don’t know is the Sun Devils would play many more games in the stadium than the Cubs.

So, their participation is important both for nearby businesses and to keep the stadium in use beyond the 15 games or so the Cubs will play each spring (almost all of them in March).

ASU generally plays about 35 home games from February through May. And if its season goes well enough, it would host several postseason games.

This may not matter much if both sides are set in their ways in disagreements over concessions, signage and how to work out scheduling conflicts.
