Phoenix Municipal Stadium


While the regular baseball season brings just one team to Arizona in the Diamondbacks, during the spring training months of February and March, the state is overrun with teams. As the home of the Arizona Cactus League, teams get ready for the season in a part of the country that provides them with late winter and early spring baseball appropriate weather. In Phoenix, the Oakland Athletics play at the Phoenix Municipal Stadium. It is located along the eastern edge of the city, about one mile from both Scottsdale Road and Tempe's Mill Avenue. It is an older stadium, but still in great shape for a spring training facility. While many Phoenix area residents may never get a chance to see a regular season Major League Baseball game, they can enjoy pre-season baseball at the Muni. The A's face the other Cactus League teams, many of which are National League Teams, so Athletic's fans may not normally get to see many of these teams during the regular season. Tickets for Phoenix Municipal Games are a discount compared to seeing the A's play in Oakland, so if you are big fan, head to spring training to see practice and games for a cheaper price in a laid back, fun environment.
