Florida town wants to host Cubs spring training

The Cubs are being courted by Florida and Arizona; both states want to be home to the team's spring training facilities. The Cubs currently train in Mesa, Arizona.

The new owners, the Ricketts family, have received offers to relocate in Naples, Florida.

Mesa will make a counter offer to try to keep the team.

City officials will meet with members of the Ricketts family next week.

The team says a new spring training facility must be part of any offer.
