Ten Stadiums of Cactus League Spring Training
The 30 teams of Major League Baseball all participate in Spring Training, half of which travel to Florida for the Grapefruit League, and half travel to Arizona. In Arizona, there are ten Spring Training stadiums where the 15 teams of the Cactus League play.
Unlike the stadiums in Florida, they are relatively close to one another, so you won't have to travel several hours no matter where you are staying. That means that you can experience an assortment of stadiums and see a variety of teams during your visit! While some teams used to play in Tucson, all the stadiums for Spring Training in Arizona are now located in Maricopa County. The farthest stadiums are about 50 miles apart.
You can see all ten stadium locations marked on a Google map. From there you can zoom in and out, get driving directions and see what else is nearby.
The purpose of Spring Training is to let the teams practice in true game-like conditions — a scrimmage, if you will. There are umpires and all the traditions of a regular season game. The difference is that this is exhibition ball; the games don't really count, and the rosters are large, so that coaches can allow some of the hotter prospects from the farm teams to try to win position spots on the official roster when the season starts.
Spring Training Baseball's Cactus League attracts over a million baseball fans each year, many of whom travel from outside Arizona to see their favorites teams play exhibition baseball. The weather is usually great, the hot dogs are tasty and the prices are reasonable. The stadiums are smaller than the teams' regular stadiums, so all seats are good seats, close to the action.
