While other cities are still shaking off the “sting” of winter weather, we in the Valley of the Sun are ready to welcome Major League Baseball fans from around the world for Cactus League Spring Training. Over half of all major league teams come here to Arizona for the month of March and help put some action in the air and on the ground! Guess what’s new…Hint: It’s here to stay!
One of the hottest tickets in town is to the brand new “Salt River Fields at Talking Stick!” This stadium is the new Cactus League home to the Colorado Rockies and the Arizona Diamondbacks.
