It’s that time of year: spring training

Next week we’ll be in Phoenix for the week. Highlights of our schedule: the grand reopening of Hohokam Stadium (and, if all goes well, a tour from the A’s of the renovated Lew Wolff Training Complex) on March 3, a look at the renovated Peoria Stadium on March 4, and a night game for the Arizona State Sun Devils at the revamped Phoenix Municipal Stadium on March 6. Other stops on the trip: Surprise Stadium and Maryvale Baseball Park.

The following week we trek to Florida for a Grapefruit League trip. Highlights of our schedule include a March 15 look at the renovated Hammond Stadium and CenturyLink Sports Complex and a March 17 date at McKechnie Field for a Pirates match. Other stops on the trip: Roger Dean Stadium, Champion Stadium, Jay Bergman FieldUSF Baseball StadiumSteinbrenner Field and Florida Auto Exchange Stadium.

Last year was the best ever for Ballpark Digest on every level: page views, social media support and revenue. We’re looking forward to a great 2015 season, beginning with spring training. Next week we’ll have news about our next book for the season.
