For all of you who love going outside and enjoying some sun and baseball, I have some good news for you. MLB’s spring training will be starting back up in just a few weeks, the beginning of March, and the East Valley is home to some great baseball teams like the Angles, Cubs, Diamondbacks, Giants, and Rockies. If you’re interested in check out a Cactus League game and want to stay in the East Valley, here are some quick overviews of the teams and their stadiums.
Tempe Diablo Stadium
2200 W Alameda Dr,
Tempe, AZ 85282
Come out and see superstars Mike Trout and Albert Puljos get ready for the 2016 season. Tempe Diablo as been the Cactus League home for the Angles for almost 25 years now and the stadium is still beautiful. Fans have the choice of sitting in the pavilion or lawn. Lawn tickets start at $10, general admission start at $15. Tempe even offers a free shuttle to and from the stadium.

2330 W Rio Salado Pkwy,
Mesa, AZ 85201
Two years ago, the Cubs moved into their new spring training facility and it continues to be Mesa’s hottest March ticket. With the surprise of the 2015 Cubs going to the NL championship series, this year’s spring training should be even wilder than ever. The stadium itself is a little replica of Wrigley Field, with the outfield lawn seats being just as crazy. Tickets start at $10 for lawn seats and I highly recommend buying your tickets in advanced for Cub’s games.
