We’re in the midst of spring training, and that means it’s time for us to ask our readers to help select their favorite Florida and Arizona facilities in the Best of the Ballparks 2019 voting, now in the second round.
We last did a Best of the Ballparks fan vote for the Cactus and Grapefruit Leagues in 2017, when Salt River Fields at Talking Stick and LECOM Park snared top honors. After first-round votes that yielded no surprises, we’re now in the second round, where there are some fascinating choices at hand. Will Salt River Fields at Talking Stick and LECOM Park repeat? Goodyear Ballpark and Surprise Stadium were the top vote-getters in the first round of Cactus League voting; can they sustain the momentum in the second r0und? We are eager to see what our readers say.
Speaking of spring training: We’re in the midst of our spring travels. After an opening Cactus League weekend visiting Phoenix Municipal Stadium, Tempe Diablo Stadium, Scottsdale Stadium and American Family Fields of Phoenix, we’re headed to Florida this coming weekend, with stops planned at Champion Stadium, Roger Dean Stadium, FITTEAM Ballpark of the Palm Beaches and First Data Field.
