When the spring arrives in the Valley of the Sun, locals and tourists alike can enjoy the boys of summer in their pursuit of autumn glory. All throughout the Phoenix Metro Area as well as wonderful Scottsdale, baseball fans have more than a dozen teams to cheer for, from the beloved Chicago Cubs to the hometown Arizona Diamondbacks. At Scottsdale Rentals, if you are fan of either the local D-backs, the San Francisco Giants or the Colorado Rockies, then one of our options for lodging in Scottsdale AZ becomes home base for all the spring training events around town.
Salt River Fields Near Our Scottsdale Vacation Rental Homes
Located just off the 101 freeway, Salt River Fields at Talking Stick is where both the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Colorado Rockies play nine innings. Of course, they alternate between days when they use the stadium, however, you will always see plenty of fans from both teams, especially since our Colorado neighbors usually make the trip down south. The facilities are top-notch, and the 11,000-seat capacity includes grandstand and mezzanine options as well as a spacious lawn that surrounds the outfield.
Bay Area Baseball
For fans of the San Francisco Giants, Scottsdale Stadium offers visitors a chance to see this popular baseball team within the cozy confines of Old Town Scottsdale. Built in 1992, the park is one of the smaller places to catch a Cactus League game, but this does not deter fans at all since the stadium is usually packed. Moreover, true to its Bay Area roots, the concessions serve items similar to those back home. For example, Gilroy Garlic Fries and plenty of Anchor Steam beer are on the menu.
Rest of the Cactus League
Outside of the teams mentioned above, the Cactus League has another twelve teams, some of which include the California Angels, L.A. Dodgers, Oakland A’s, Kansas City Royals and the Cleveland Indians, just to name a few. Each team provides its fans with fun-filled excitement alongside all of the one-of-a-kind spring training memorabilia. All of these teams play outside of Scottsdale; however, each stadium is easily within driving distance from your comfortable rental. This is especially true for Cubs fans, since Sloan Park is located in nearby Mesa, AZ, minutes away from Scottsdale. Moreover, with all the non-baseball events as well as the natural attractions such as the McDowell Mountain Preserve and Camelback Mountain, Scottsdale is the ideal place to stay when visiting for spring training.
