Chase Field in Downtown Phoenix
Home to championship baseball, Arizona is the perfect spring and summer destination for fans of America’s pastime.
Central Arizona is home to the MLB's Arizona Diamondbacks – former World Series Champions and members of the National League West Division.
The ballpark features a retractable roof – the first of its kind in the United States – and is perfect for escaping the Arizona summer heat.
Game attendees are also presented with onsite restaurants and a swimming pool, perfect for fans looking to cool off while catching some scorching-hot baseball.
Moreover, Chase Field and the Diamondbacks are well known for hosting fan-favorite promotional events throughout the season. Star Wars Night, Bark at the Park, Zombie Night, and more are frequently hosted at Chase Field. The MLB regular season runs from April to October – offering the perfect summer vacation destination for AZ travelers.
In nearby Tempe, the Arizona State University Sun Devils have kept the championship-winning-ways in full swing. The men’s Sun Devil baseball club has won multiple National Championships during their long history while competing in the PAC-12 conference.
Home games have been played at Packard Stadium every spring since 1974. The 4,500-capacity ballpark is located in downtown Tempe – not far from Phoenix and surrounding suburbs.
ASU’s softball program is no scrub, either. The lady Sun Devils have won multiple national championships themselves in recent years, and are one the NCAA’s most competitive softball teams. Both teams compete in the comfortable spring months of February to late June.
The southern Arizona city of Tucson is home of the University of Arizona Wildcats. Too, the Wildcats are former NCAA National Champions, playing home games at Hi Corbett Field while also competing in the PAC-12 conference. The winning ways have continued in recent years with the women’s softball team – as the lady Wildcats have won over five national championships since 1991.
Of course, any discussion of Arizona baseball would be incomplete without the mention of MLB Cactus League spring training. Every spring, during the month of March, 15 MLB teams compete with one another in the Cactus League. Facilities such as Cubs Park, Salt River Fields at Talking Stick, Scottsdale Stadium, Peoria Sports Complex, and more are ideal destinations for baseball fans.
Clearly, the Copper State is a haven for championship baseball and fans will reap the rewards when taking in a game. Catch all the moon-shot home runs, blazing fast balls, and diving outfield grabs in beautiful Arizona.
