The Cubs weren't the only ones reporting to Sloan Park for spring training; Banner Collective arrived in Arizona equipped with plenty of cameras and stamina to capture the official start of baseball season.  From Joe Maddon addressing the entire team for the first time to Jake Arrieta getting in a workout session while the sun rose, we were there filming away. The days were long, mostly pleasant and sunny, and extremely important for obtaining all the footage needed for the 2015 MLB season.

For Banner, spring training is more than practices and team bonding.  It's one of the few chances we have of interacting with the players and coaching staff, filming them in front of green screens, dugouts and the gym.  All of this footage is then used for in-game videos and commercials you'll enjoy throughout the upcoming season.

Here's just a sneak peak behind the scenes.  We can't wait to show you the final product during the games at Wrigley Field!
