Attention baseball fans! Spring Training 2019 begins this weekend! The Arizona Cactus League consists of 10 stadiums and 15 MLB teams, Scottsdale is fortunate to host 2 of the stadiums and 3 teams! Scottsdale Stadium is the home field of the San Francisco Giants, while Salt River fields is the home field for the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Colorado Rockies.
Scottsdale Stadium was originally built in 1965 and is located at 7408 E. Osborn Road in the heart of Downtown Scottsdale. Scottsdale Stadium is the home of the San Francisco Giants and games attract large crowds of fans. It has been called “the gem of the Cactus League ball parks” for its awesome location right in the middle of historic and scenic downtown Scottsdale and a short walk to a wide selection of restaurants, clubs and art galleries. Parking for Scottsdale Stadium is limited, but the City of Scottsdale Trolley has a stop at the stadium, so you can park pretty much anywhere along the route and hitch a free ride to and from the game. Be sure to get to the game early to hang out behind the first-base line near the Giants dugout to meet the players.
