SHARE Cubs’ spring training facility to be renamed Sloan Park

Cubs Park, the Chicago Cubs’ spring training facility, will be renamed Sloan Park after the club entered into a new partnership with Sloan Valve Company on Thursday.

Sloan, a company based in the Chicago area, becomes the sixth Legacy Partner of the Cubs, joining Anheuser-Busch, ATI Physical Therapy, Starwood Hotels and Resorts, Under Armour and Wintrust.

The partnership includes the renaming of the spring training facility as well as branding at Wrigley Field. Sloan will have a presence in the visitors’ bullpen.


“Teaming up with Sloan — another family-owned company based in Chicago with more than a century of history — is an important move for the Cubs as we look to provide clean and sustainable water solutions for our facilities in both Mesa and Chicago,” Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts said in a statement.

Sloan is a manufacturer of commercial plumbing systems and has been in operation since 1906. The company is headquartered in Franklin Park.
