The Complete Guide to Spring Training 2019 / Arizona

Regular price $ 7.99

Spring training is a time of new beginnings, when the baseball world preps for another season. Hope is in the air, with rookies fighting for roster spots and veterans prepping for another campaign. Every team in spring training has a shot to contend for a title, as life on the diamond begins anew.

Hardcore baseball fans scout their favorite teams and eagerly track every open roster spot. Casual fans head to spring training in search of the perfect Arizona experience, happy to sip a brew at the outfield bar. This book is for both kinds of fans.

This book covers the 15 Cactus League teams playing out of 10 training camps: Camelback Ranch-Glendale (Chicago White Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers), Goodyear Ballpark (Cincinnati Reds, Cleveland Indians), Hohokam Stadium (Oakland Athletics), Maryvale Baseball Park (Milwaukee Brewers), Peoria Stadium (San Diego Padres, Seattle Mariners), Salt River Fields at Talking Stick, (Arizona Diamondbacks, Colorado Rockies), Scottsdale Stadium (San Francisco Giants), Sloan Park (Chicago Cubs), Surprise Stadium (Kansas City Royals, Texas Rangers), and Tempe Diablo Stadium (Los Angeles Angels), as well as Phoenix Municipal Stadium, home of the Arizona State University Sun Devils, and GCU Ballpark, home to the Grand Canyon University Antelopes. Also covered: exhibition games in Las Vegas and Montreal.

Each chapter features:

  • Team schedules
  • Best seats in each ballpark, whether you want comfort, shade, accessibility or autographs
  • Ballpark tips
  • Must-sees before and after the games, including local baseball attractions and sports bars
  • Training information, to plan a trip before the games start

  • Travel tips: Low fares at nearby airports, alternative routes (beat the traffic!) and freeway shortcuts
  • College games: create your own day-night doubleheaders
