“Good But Not Awesome”

Phoenix Municipal Stadium
Ranked #93 of 236 things to do in Phoenix
Attraction details
Reviewed March 18, 2013

The stadium is a nice size, holds about 9,000 people (a little less). The lines however seem to get a little long, and it takes a while to even get a bottle a water, much less a beer. So expect to spend time away from the game if you are going to get food or drinks for yourself or anyone. Also, if you are seated in the outfield sections, there is a lot of traffic, both from attendees and vendors.

so I can understand why the Athletics will be moving their spring training facilities after next year ....... the good - the volunteers ! family environment, easy to get tickets (attention Giants fans - a lot cheaper here !!!) and usually seats available until the last minute (even standing room only). the bad - facilities are old, seats not very comfortable, not much shade except the highest seats under the overhang, old bathrooms.

some tips - see the Giants here since it's a lot cheaper than in Scottsdale; seats are usually plentiful. If you end up with standing room only tickets or are in the bleachers, head for the grassy area out in right field. After the press are fed, the area is opened to the public. Choose the picnic table the closest to the fence - some judicious movement and you will be shaded for most of the game. It's sometimes hard to see the game if people are standing in the walkway, but a little bit of moving around won't hurt you. Bring plenty of sunscreen !

Go A's !!

The stadium is older but just fine for spring training. Seating staff very friendly and helpful. Food selection is pretty slim compared to a place like Peoria, however. Beer cold, though!

This is the hardest venue to get tickets for Spring Training that I've found. It's that popular, especially during the height of the season or for night games. We had to settle for standing-room only tickets twice before and got turned away as we drove up to the parking lot one other time. Like most of the older stadiums, the setting is intimate and almost every seat offers a gray view. If you need shade from the hot AZ sun you really have to get your tic early. The upper levels in the center offer the most shade. Enjoy the game!

Another one of the better venues for spring training games. Originally built as the home of the San Francisco Giants, it is not the home for the Oakland A's. It's a great place to sit and watch a game. The view of the surrounding Papago Peaks add something to the experience.
