1996 Chicago Cubs Schedule

Baseball Almanac is pleased to present a comprehensive team schedule for the 1996 Chicago Cubs with dates for every game played, opponents faced, a final score, and a cumulative record for the 1996 season.

"I don't think I stayed for a complete game that first year (in Arizona). But something happened. During the second year, I started watching more intently, listening to the broadcasters talk about strategy. I started getting it. Suddenly, a 162-game season didn't seem ridiculously long anymore." - Richard Ruelas in The Arizona Republic (11-07-2001)
