After hibernating all winter, baseball is back. No, the regular season has yet to get underway, but that doesn’t mean the avid fan can’t see the world’s top ball players in action. Spring training has begun, as Major League teams get set for the 2017 season. Spring training is a time for teams to work out the kinks and get back into playing shape. It’s also an ideal period for players to get acclimated to new teams. For the baseball fan, spring training offers the first glimpse of their favorite teams. Spring training is divided into two leagues: the Grapefruit League in Florida and the Cactus League in Arizona. The 2017 MLB Cactus League features some intriguing teams and matchups. You can get tickets today.
The Cactus League will be spring training home to the following MLB teams: Arizona, Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Colorado, Kansas City, Los Angeles Angels, Los Angeles Dodgers, Milwaukee, Oakland, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and Texas.
All eyes will be on the defending World Series champion Chicago Cubs, who put an end to a 108-year title drought last season in thrilling fashion. The Cubs will be looking to repeat as World Champions, as they last did in 1907 and 1908. The Cubs play Cleveland on Feb. 26 from Sloan Park in Mesa, Arizona. Tickets start at $31. This should be a compelling rematch of last fall’s World Series. The Cubs take on their crosstown rivals, the American League Chicago White Sox on Feb. 27 from Sloan Park. Tickets start at $8.
Arizona will be playing in the friendly confines of its home state. The Diamondbacks take on the Cincinnati Reds Feb. 27 from Salt River Fields in Scottsdale, Arizona. Tickets start at $5.
Spring training goes through the end of March. The regular season is slated to get started on April 2.
