Spring Training

PLAY BALL!

 

The Cactus League is back with Spring Training in Old Town Scottsdale. Come out to see your favorite players and prospects at Scottsdale Stadium, exclusive home of the San Francisco Giants.

Located in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale, this gem of a ballpark lets fans soak up the sun while checking out the amazing view of Camelback Mountain.

Bike, scoot, walk or ride-share for easy access to the stadium. If traveling by car, parking is free in Old Town and there is a complimentary trolley that stops at five of the city’s parking areas. The trolley service operates on home game days and starts 1.5 hours before the first pitch and ends 30 minutes after the last inning.

Don’t miss out on the Scottsdale Giant Race, presented by Alaska Airlines, taking place on Saturday, February 24.

Participants can choose between 5K and 10K options and will receive a custom finisher’s medal, an official race t-shirt and a commemorative bib. And best of all, participants will receive a complimentary ticket to the Opening Day game against the Chicago Cubs following the conclusion of the race! Come cross the finish line on the field where the San Francisco Giants will begin their 2024 Spring Training season.
