Then a groundskeeper will explain how Sec Taylor Field, one of the best in the Pacific Coast League, is maintained. Although Principal Park hosts almost half a million spectators each season, fans don’t usually see more than the stadium exterior and the playing field.

In recent years an entire new playing surface was installed and extended netting behind home plate was added to protect fans.


When the Cubs are home the following week, you will have a reserved seat for a game with the Omaha Royals.
