CAA ICON was hired to represent the Chicago Cubs and work in conjunction with City of Mesa throughout activation, design and construction for a state-of-the-art ballpark, two-story player development facility and a rebuilt and enhanced Riverview Park. The development is the first and largest of its kind in the Cactus League and includes a few features reminiscent of Wrigley Field, including the brick wall behind home plate, arched steel work on the light standards and cantilevered roofs.
The player development areas include a clubhouse facility, six practice fields, an agility field, in-field diamond, batting cages and pitching mounds. Throughout the stadium, there are a number of party and patio decks that allow fans and groups to take in different views and experiences of the action on the field.The facility was named Sloan Park after Sloan Valve Company, a 109-year-old Chicago business, became the naming rights partner in 2015.
