Take Yourself Out to Spring Training

Thursday, March 05 at 10:15 AM
Category: Personal Finance

Baseball has long been one of America's favorite pastimes. And for avid baseball fans, there's nothing more exciting than catching a Major League Baseball game live at the stadium and seeing the players up close. Yet, with the soaring cost of MLB ticket prices, it's getting harder and harder for families to afford the cost. There is, however, a way to get up close to your favorite players at a fraction of the cost, and at the same time, give your family a fun trip out to the ballpark. It’s the spring training ballpark!

Winter weather brings baseball's 30 professional teams to two warm and sunny locations — Florida for the Grapefruit League and Arizona for the Cactus League. In the month of March, you can see big league games in a way you haven't seen them before, and get up close and personal with the league's biggest stars.
Find Your Favorite Team
The best way to plan your trip is to find out where your favorite team plays. Teams that play in Florida in the Grapefruit League play in different locations throughout the state, including Tampa, Kissimmee and Fort Myers. These teams include:
  • Astros
  • Blue Jays
  • Braves
  • Cardinals
  • Marlins
  • Mets
  • Nationals
  • Orioles
  • Pirates
  • Phillies
  • Rays
  • Red Sox
  • Tigers
  • Twins
  • Yankees

Cactus League teams, which primarily play in the greater Phoenix-area of Arizona, include:

  • A’s
  • Angels
  • Brewers
  • Cubs
  • Diamondbacks
  • Dodgers
  • Giants
  • Indians
  • Mariners
  • Padres
  • Rangers
  • Rockies
  • Royals
  • White Sox

When attending spring games, keep in mind the following:

  • Stadiums are not large and tickets for rival and popular teams, such as the Red Sox and Yankees sell out fast. You can purchase tickets online as early as January.
  • The best time to get autographs is during workouts and before the game. Don’t approach players when they are out with their families.
  • A number of travel sites offer spring training vacation packages, including tickets and accommodations.
