Good stadiums to watch a game

-Phoenix Muni-a bit old but good parking and easy access.

-Surprise-nice facility-don't go unless you are staying in area-traffic a killer

Avoid Maryvale(Brewers) at all costs-totally amateurish-1 hour to park-20 min concession lines

1. Re: cactus league

Being a long time local I have to disagree with this opinion on Cactus League ball parks. You missed a good one in Tempe at Diablo Stadium. Limited nearby parking, but rarely, if ever, crowded during the week. Maryvale rarely has 4,000 fans in attendance unless it's against the Cubs or D-Backs. Parking yesterday PM (Maryvale) was a easy (out and in less than 5 minutes) and even with 4,200 in attendance the consession lines were next to none existant! Surprise is too far out. Scottsdale Stadium is more expensive, but plenty of nearby parking and even sitting on the grass can still be great place to watch a game. Peoria Stadium (Mariners & Padres) is a solid spot, but a good 25 mile trip from Phoenix. FYI
