The Sports Archives – Where to Find Your Favorite Teams for Spring Training!

If you want to watch your favorite baseball team during spring training, there are one of two places you will find them – in Florida or Arizona. Florida is home to the Grapefruit League, which includes the Braves, Nationals, Astros, Mets, Blue Jays, Tigers, Phillies, Yankees, Red Sox, Pirates, Orioles, Rays, Twins, Cardinals, and Marlins. These teams play at 13 different stadiums throughout Florida.

The rest of the teams play their spring training games in the Arizona Cactus League. 10 different sports stadiums in central Arizona play host to the Royals, Rangers, Padres, Mariners, Reds, Indians, White Sox, Dodgers, Giants, Rockies, Diamondbacks, Angels, Cubs, Brewers, and Athletics.

The Red Sox stadium is less than a year old, while the Pirates have been playing in their stadium since 1923. Tickets for these spring training exhibition games range from $6 to $41. There are many young pitching prospects to look out for this season, as well as a shortstop for the Boston Red Sox – arguably one of the toughest field positions in baseball.
