Cactus League Spring Training, a seasonal rite in Greater Phoenix, roars to life every February and March with the iconic sounds of cracking bats, snapping mitts and happy fans.
For baseball lovers, it doesn’t get much better than this: sunny weather, affordable tickets and unparalleled proximity to the best players in the game.
Fifteen major league teams play more than 200 games across Greater Phoenix during the month, with no two ballparks more than a 45-minute drive from each other.
The 2019 Cactus League season takes place February 21 - March 26.
