The Chicago Cubs' 2010 season was the 138th season of American baseball for the Chicago Cubs.

Off-season[edit]

In December 2009, Florida Governor Charlie Crist met with Cubs president Crane Kenney, chairman Tom Ricketts and other team officials about possibly moving the Cubs' spring training and minor league facilities from Mesa to Naples.[1] In January 2010, however, the city of Mesa approved an agreement that would have the Cubs remain in that city for spring training through 2035, with the city building a new $84 million stadium and training facility. The agreement would take effect pending financing legislation and subsequent voter referendum in November 2010.[2]
