Take your date out to the ball game!  Just leave the peanuts and Cracker Jacks at home because outside food and drinks aren't allowed in the stadium.  Spring training games are a great chance to root for the home team if your favorite team isn't the Diamondbacks.  It is also a great chance to share some excitement and a giant hotdog with your date. 

There are fifteen teams in the Cactus League and ten stadiums are located all through the valley so you can choose your favorite team and/or the nearest game.  The stadiums are smaller, the games and crowds are more laid back, and the atmosphere is fun and casual. 

You can sit on the bleachers or on the grass.  Hotdogs, pretzels, popcorn, sodas, beer and other standard ball game food is for sale for the standard (rather high) ball game prices.  Games are played in the evenings and on week-end afternoons.

Spring training starts in mid-February and continues through March.  Tickets start at $10 for lawn seating and go up, even way up, depending on if you want bleacher, sideline, or luxury box seating.  Our photos are from a Dodger vs. Rockies game at Camelback Ranch.  Be aware that some stadiums charge for parking, and traffic to and from the stadium can be heavy.
