The focus of Chicago Cubs fans in 2014 continues to be as much on cities like Knoxville, Tennessee, and Des Moines, Iowa, as it is on the city of Chicago.
That's where the team's Double-A and Triple-A affiliates reside and where a number of the team's promising young prospects are currently playing on the path to the big leagues.
