    The 2014 Chicago Cubs season was the 142nd season of the Chicago Cubs franchise, the 139th in the National League and the 99th at Wrigley Field. The Cubs began the season on the road against the Pittsburgh Pirates on March 31, 2014 and finished the regular season on September 28, 2014, on the road against the Milwaukee Brewers. The Cubs hosted the Philadelphia Phillies for Opening Day at Wrigley Field on April 4, 2014. The Cubs' interleague opponents were the American League East, in addition to their cross-town rivals, the Chicago White Sox. The Cubs finished the season with a 73-89 record in Rick Renteria's first and only season as manager.[1]

The park replaces HoHoKam Stadium which had been their spring training home since 1979.[3] With a capacity of 15,000, Cubs Park becomes the largest spring training stadium by capacity in Major League Baseball, surpassing Camelback Ranch in Glendale.[4]
