It seems like baseball never stops in the Valley of the Sun. The Phoenix area and its visitors love baseball. The season may be over for the Arizona Diamondbacks by the time October comes around, but there is plenty of baseball to tide us over until Spring Training begins this winter. This is Arizona Fall League Baseball. These guys may not all be Major Leaguers (yet), but it isn't Little League either.

Arizona Fall League ("AFL") is owned and operated by all 30 Major League baseball clubs. It is considered the step before entry into the major leagues for many players. Each August Major League Baseball holds a draft to determine who will be sent to the Arizona Fall League teams. Each of the 30 Major League Baseball teams selects six prospects to play in the AFL. Six teams will be assigned 30 players each, and they are organized into two divisions. The three teams in the East Division are the Mesa Solar Sox, Salt River Rafters, and the Scottsdale Scorpions. The three teams in the West Division are the Glendale Desert Dogs, Surprise Saguaros, and the Peoria Javelinas.

The 2017 Arizona Fall League schedule calls for games to be played between October 10 and November 16 with the Championship Game to be held on November 18 at Scottsdale Stadium. There are no games on Sundays.

Purchasing tickets for AFL games is easy. You don't have to worry about online purchase, convenience charges or will call. Individual game tickets for Arizona Fall League baseball games can be purchased only at the stadium, starting one hour before game time. Bring cash.

Arizona Fall League Single Game Tickets

If you will only be in town for just a couple of days, or for some reason single tickets are your only option, they are a great deal at $8 per ticket, $6 for seniors over 55 and for kids 3-17 at every stadium. Children under 3 are admitted free. Groups of 20 or more can purchase tickets for $4 each. All seats are general admission. That means that you pick any available seat.

An Arizona Fall League Season Pass is good for any game at any stadium. Prices are:

  • Family (up to 6 members): $120 or  $75 for D-Backs season ticket holders.
