This book covers the best of spring training in Arizona, with extensive guides to all the major-league camps, completed with schedules, workout times, concessions highlights, seat recommendations and more. Also included: where to stay near the camps (including RV camps), what to do when not at training camp, and other areas of interest.
This book is both for the hardcore baseball fan — who goes to spring training to scout out their favorite team in depth – as well as the more casual fan who heads to spring training more in search of the perfect suntan than in search of this year’s spring phenom. While the hardcores just want to know the shortest route between their hotel and the ballpark, the casual fan knows that the richness of spring training is augmented with visits to local restaurants, shopping areas, and area attractions.
This book covers the 15 teams training at 10 spring training camps in the greater Phoenix area: 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 (Arizona Diamondbacks, Colorado Rockies), Scottsdale Stadium (San Francisco Giants), Sloan Park (Chicago Cubs), Surprise Stadium (Kansas City Royals, Texas Rangers), Tempe Diablo Stadium (Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim). Also covered: Phoenix Municipal Stadium, home of the Arizona State University Wildcats.
Each chapter features:
- Best seats in each ballpark, whether you want comfort, shade, accessibility or autographs
- Ballpark tips
- Must-sees before and after the games
- Training information, to plan a trip before the games start
- Information on new and renovated ballparks, from 2015, including Hohokam Stadium
- Travel tips: Low fares at nearby airports, alternative routes (beat the traffic!) and freeway shortcuts
- College games: create your own day-night doubleheaders!
- Points of interest for the baseball history fan
- Changes for spring training 2017
This book has been totally updated for spring training 2016, with pricing, ballpark offerings and information revied. Do not buy this book if you want 2016 schedules: they’re not released. But if you want planning information and tips for making those hotel and condo reservations, this ebook will be an indispensable guide.
