Mets, Cubs to clash during Vegas ‘Big League Weekend’

The Las Vegas 51s will welcome their parent-club, the New York Mets, during the 2014 Big League Weekend at Cashman Field, team officials announced on Monday.

The Mets will play two games against the Chicago Cubs on Saturday, March 15, and Sunday, March 16.

Ticket packages can be purchased at 702-798-7825. Individual tickets are not yet on sale.

Big League Weekend is an annual spring training showcase in southern Nevada, with the Cubs marking their 10th straight appearance next year.

The Mets will be making their first appearance at Cashman Field since 1997.

The team signed a two-year player development deal with the 51s following the 2012 Major League Baseball season. In the first season under the deal, the 51s drew 328,266 fans and reached the playoffs for the first time since 2002.
