Every year in March, the Cactus League invites you to experience spring training, a beloved Arizona treasure. In Scottsdale, we are proud to have not one, but two world class spring training stadiums. In Old Town, there’s the Scottsdale Stadium (home to the San Francisco Giants) and the Salt River Fields (home to our own AZ Diamondbacks & the CO Rockies). Several other stadiums are easily accessible around the Valley and within close proximity to Scottsdale, including Sloan Park, home of the World Series Champions Chicago Cubs. Check out the Cactus League website to find a complete schedule of games. Spring training games are scheduled throughout the month of March.
