The World Baseball Classic means the Cubs will have an extended stay in the desert. Pitchers and catchers will report to the teams Arizona complex in early February, and perhaps the extra time in Mesa will help a rebuilding team come together.

The spring training schedule released on Friday showed 17 home dates at HoHoKam Park, 16 Cactus League road games and a St. Patricks Day in Las Vegas.

The Cubs will open their schedule on Feb. 23 against the Los Angeles Angels in Tempe, and close it out on March 28 versus the Seattle Mariners. In between, they will play the Texas Rangers twice in Las Vegas (March 16-17).

The Cubs will see the White Sox twice next spring March 7 at HoHoKam Park and March 15 in Glendale.

Opening Day is April 1 at PNC Park against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Individual tickets for home games at HoHoKam Park can be purchased on Jan. 4 at cubs.com or by calling 1-800-905-3315. Heres the 2013 spring training schedule, with all games beginning at 1:05 p.m. Arizona time unless noted otherwise:
