Baseball is a national pastime, and we have a corner on cheap, fun games here in Phoenix with the Cactus League baseball spring training. From February 25 to March 28, 2023, you can attend Major League games for as little as $10.00 per regular-price ticket.
Spring training games give you a chance to get a lot closer to the athletes that are usually on the other side of a big wall at their home stadiums. It’s also a fun family event, where you can relax and watch the game.
Whether you have a favorite team from your childhood (looking at all you Chicago Cubs fans) and know which team you want to see, or you just want to go see whoever’s playing, there are great options. But, it can be frustrating to try to find the actual best deals on tickets.
Keep reading to find the best prices for each team, even if you don’t get a big discount, a live MLB game is a super fun experience for the whole family.
Want to figure it out yourself?
Here’s the schedule, and here’s a map to the fields.
