Cubs spring training schedule and Andre Dawson returns

Today the Cubs announced their spring training schedule.  Here it is in a screenshot from their website:

The Cubs open on Friday February 23rd vs the Brewers.  Last spring training game is Sunday March 25th at the moment.  Games could later be added between then and the season opener in Miami on the 29th of that month.

Earlier today there was this news about Andre Dawson from Bob Nightengale:

Nothing confirmed yet, but guessing that “The Hawk” will be in a role similar to Ryne Sandberg who serves as a team ambassador.  This will be great for the organization and the fans.  Dawson has always loved Chicago dating to when he signed as a free agent in 1987.  What was very unusual then was seeing a player of his caliber take less money to play at Wrigley.  

Great thing is how ownership and management bring former players back in a meaningful role to stay involved with the team on a daily basis.
