History

Everyone looks forward to spring, awaiting the thawing sunshine that brings new life and, more importantly, warmth. As everyone holds their breath to see the shadow of the groundhog, there is always one sure sign of spring- Spring Training Baseball. Sports fans and baseball lovers can count on pitchers and catchers reporting for duty in February and the squad heading back onto the diamond in March as sure signs that warm weather is upon us. Around the country, fans shed their winter parkas and snow shoes and make their way south to the warm confines of Arizona and Florida to check out an up and coming prospect or get an autograph from their favorite star. When it comes to Spring Training venues, there is one that stands above the rest. Scottsdale Stadium in Scottsdale, Arizona is always at the top of attendance every spring, especially as the home of the San Francisco Giants. The Giants, fresh off of World Championships in 2010 and 2012, have one of the most loyal and passionate fanbases in baseball, and Giants fans have a history of incredible attendance at Scottsdale Stadium.

Scottsdale Stadium, originally built in 1956, has been the Spring Training home of the Boston Red Sox, Baltimore Orioles Chicago Cubs, Oakland A's and their current home team, the San Francisco Giants. Nestled in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale and on the site of the original venue, the current stadium was constructed in 1991, by the designers of Camden Yards, home of the Baltimore Orioles. In less than a year, the new Scottsdale Stadium was built to begin the 1992 baseball season. At this time, the draw of Spring Training was waning due to outdated facilities across the Cactus League, and rebuilding Scottsdale Stadium was critical to keeping the spring classic in Arizona. Built on 11 acres of land, Scottsdale Stadium is adorned with over 200 trees, beautifully manicured lawns in the outfield, perfect for family picnics during the game, and scenic views of the mountains of Arizona in the distance. With a recent $23 million renovation completed in 2006, Scottsdale Stadium is packed with all the amenities and comforts of a major league stadium, but with intimacy and casual nature of spring training baseball. Getting tickets to check out the home team Giants or your visiting team gets you up close and personal with your favorite players as you thaw out in the springtime warmth of Scottsdale.


Events Hosted

With two World Championships in the last four years, the San Francisco Giants are one of the hottest tickets in any town they play in. With an impressive sellout streak alive in their home ballpark of AT&T Park in San Francisco, their fans flock by the thousands to Scottsdale Stadium to cheer on their beloved players and future stars every spring. Spring Training is a time to get up close and personal with the players, relax in the sunshine to watch players from the minors looking to make the Opening Day roster and just see baseball at its simplest and most accessible.

Scottsdale Stadium is not just the spring home of the Giants, but also host the Arizona Fall League, featuring the brightest stars in the minor leagues.
