HoHoKam Park to Sky Harbor Airport on a Friday afternoon

Hi, I have purchased tickets for my family to see the Cubs at HoHoKam Park during spring training. Game starts at 1:05pm. Our flight out is at 6:50pm. We will have a rental car to return. Two questions: what kind of rush hour traffic am I looking at to get from the park to the airport? Mapquest says 11.5 miles, 15 minutes but I know better... Second, how easy to navigate is this airport? We are flying into McCarran in LV so departure will be our first contact with Sky Harbor. I want to make sure we have enough time to get where we need to go. Scheduling is not ideal but that is the game the "boys" want to seeso I hope you won't tell me we need to leave before the end of the 3rd inning in order to make our flight. Thanks!

I just typed a long reply, but I don't see it... :( I would consider leaving Mesa at 4pm to allow enough time to arrive at your gate. Enjoy the game and go Cubbies!

Friday afternoon is one of the worst times for traffic, but since you have more than 1 person you can use the carpool lane. Shouldn't take more than 30 minutes.

Another factor that would lean towards zstruck's reply is that security at the airport is very busy at that time as well. Allow 1/2 hour to return the rental car and take the shuttle to the terminal.
