Spring Training at Phoenix Ballparks

Don’t Miss Annual Cactus League Spring Baseball

Spring break is coming sooner than you think – there's hardly a better way to enjoy the season than spring training in Arizona.

Based primarily in the Phoenix metropolitan area, Major League Baseball’s Cactus League is experienced throughout the Valley of the Sun – in well-known ballparks like the Tempe Diablo Stadium and the Peoria Sports Complex.

Running March 1st through Opening Day in early April, spring training brings World Series champions like the San Francisco Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers to Phoenix – allowing visitors and residents alike to enjoy one-half of the MLB right in Valley of the Sun stadiums.

So find your favorite team, grab your glove, and catch the spring training season.
