Also known as “Phoenix Muni”, this stadium is the home of the Oakland Athletics during the spring baseball season and is also home to the AFL’s Phoenix Desert Dogs. This stadium is rich with history and has been refurbished in 2002. The stadium has been in Phoenix for several years and hosted the Phoenix Firebirds before they moved to Scottsdale Stadium.

This is another location where parking can be a challenge. Arrive early to be sure that you are able to get some parking. Office complexes nearby offer auxiliary parking from time to time and are within walking distance to the park. Because the ballpark is situated in a primarily corporate center, there are not many restaurants within close proximity. However, Tempe is just on the other side of the lake, home to Arizona State University and host of several community events. You will not be disappointed when you catch a game at Phoenix Municipal Stadium.

This stadium is one of the few nestled in the middle of a residential area. Located in Mesa, Arizona, it is the Spring Training home to the Chicago Cubs and the Arizona Fall League home to the Mesa Solar Sox. The stadium may be a bit hard to find at first but, once you arrive, you should be geared up to catch some excellent baseball.

Due to it’s location take note to arrive early. Parking may be a bit challenging during spring training games but, die-hard Cubs fans could care less about the parking, they want baseball and they love their Cubbies! Be prepared to view an excellent game at another one of the valley’s excellent stadiums with some of baseball’s most dedicated fans.

The classic design and the faux white picket fencing help to make this a gorgeous stadium. Built in 2002, this is one of the newest additions to the stadiums and is definitely a must on the list of stadiums to visit.

Peoria Sports Complex is the Spring Training home of both the San Diego Padres and the Seattle Mariners. It is also the home of the Fall League’s Peoria Javelinas and the Peoria Saguaros. The stadium is situated on the northwest side of Phoenix with plenty of lodging and places to eat nearby. It’s proximity to the Loop 101 make it a convenient location to catch a ball game.

The complex itself is comprised of two stadiums in a large spring training facility that has it’s own parking. The stadiums are more traditional ballparks that do not boast much of the same flair or history as some of the others. Regardless, it is an excellent location to catch a spring training game and hopefully a ball or two.
