Attention baseball fans! It’s that time of year again-baseball Spring Training time. Spring Training 2019 begins this weekend! Baseball under the warm Arizona sun has been a tradition since 1947 when the Cleveland Indians and New York Giants came here to prepare for the season ahead of them. Now, the Cactus League’s 15 teams call Arizona home for Spring Training and Scottsdale is fortunate to be home to the San Francisco Giants, Colorado Rockies and our home team, the Arizona Diamondbacks. Baseball fans come from all over the country to warm up and watch their favorite teams play at Scottsdale’s premier baseball facilities.
Scottsdale Stadium was originally built in 1965 and is home to the San Francisco Giants. It has been called “the gem of the Cactus League ball parks” for its awesome location right in the middle of historic and scenic downtown Scottsdale and a short walk to a wide selection of restaurants, clubs and art galleries. Visit www.scottsdaleaz.gov for the Scottsdale Stadium spring training schedule.
The Salt River Fields is the latest and greatest in spring training stadiums and consists of separate training facilities and clubhouses accommodating each team along with an 11,000 seat main stadium with a roof structure designed to provide plenty of shade. The stadium also offers open fan observation area and batting cages. In addition, if you are not into peanuts or cracker jacks, then SRV has you covered. They not only offer traditional baseball fare, but also food for vegetarians, gluten-free options, and high end dining.
