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.
Other Scottsdale Activities
Scottsdale’s top-notch dining includes tastes of area cuisine, upscale and fancy for a special date, and action-packed sports bars with plenty of flat screen TVs, drinks, food, and team spirit to watch your favorite team play when you can’t get to the stadium. When you’re at the ballpark you can pick up souvenirs from your favorite team, but Scottsdale has many other shops and boutiques to explore and find other mementos of your trip at Scottsdale Quarter, Kierland Commons, and Scottsdale Fashion Square. Take in a little history with your shopping and dining excursions and visit historic Old Town Scottsdale. Trade in your bat and ball for some golf clubs and tee off at any of Scottsdale’s world-class golf courses, many which play host to PGA and LPGA tournaments. Get out of the ballpark for a while and into the natural beauty of Scottsdale and wander miles of hiking and biking trails or book an ATV tour to take you further out into the Sonoran Desert.
