The Cubs at HoHoKam in Mesa are the most popular. It is a fun, intimate ballpark. Parking is a little tight.

The nicest park is the new one, Camelback Ranch at 100th Ave and Camelback. The White Sox and Dodgers play there. It is also the most expensive.

I like the park at Surprise Stadium, Rangers and A's play there. Also one of the best values. Free parking and several 2 for 1 days. Better hurry though this is the last weekend.

Been to most of the Cactus League stadiums in the Phoenix metro, all except Diablo Stadium in Tempe and Peoria Sports Complex.

Camelback Ranch is definitely the nicest facility right down to the last detail. Not a bad seat in the house. Free parking and the best concession selections. Just went again today actually and had an awesome time!

I would also recommend Goodyear Ballpark (Reds, Indians) and Surprise Stadium.

Maryvale Baseball Park (Brewers) is a lot of fun. It's located in a bad neighborhood, but it's not any issue during day games. The park itself is nice and many Milwaukee traditions are celebrated here. Cheapest tickets in all of the Arizona Cactus League.

Scottsdale Stadium is overrated in my opinion. Parking is hard to come by. There are more bleacher seats here than any other Cactus League park. Tickets and concession are expensive for what you get. On top of that, you have to deal with Giants fans.

hohokam is the most popular because it's the cubs - but it really isn't anything special as far as a park

I really like both camelback ranch and goodyear .... however, I'd probably say there is something about surprise that I really like from the way it's designed

for the best value - maryvale and the brewers .... these games are fun as the brewers fans get there early to tailgate, you have the sausage races, singing of roll out the barrell and all the sausage selections complete with stadium sauce ......... usually the best ticket values as well

maryvale is no frills, but it's nice

Already under construction, but not in Phoenix. It's on the Salt River Reservation, next to Scottsdale. New facility for the D-Backs and Rockies.

ANGELS... Tempe Diablo Stadium, $5.00 seats on the grassy knoll overlooking left field, take a blanket and an umbrella for shade. You may very well end up with a souvenir ball as well!
