Preferred Game Time
The A's offer both 1:05 pm or 7:05 pm starts. The crowd at a night game is as good as it gets in the Valley of the Sun. The place comes alive with the nearby Scottsdale crowd and the stadium has a great vibe on a Friday or Saturday night.
Scottsdale women: The beauty of an evening game with Scottsdale women hanging around is pretty impressive, but a bit odd at a baseball game in the Spring. Not that we are complaining.
Macayo's Mexican Kitchen
No trip to Arizona for Spring Training is complete without enjoying the best tasting Mexican food around. Macayo's Mexican Kitchen is a Valley of the Sun tradition, serving delicious chimichangas, tacos and enchiladas in town since 1946. Before or after the A's game, fans can visit Macayo's Depot Cantina, just over the bridge in Downtown Tempe at 3 rd St. & Ash www.macayo.com
Phoenix Municipal Stadium History
No spring training ballpark details its history better than Phoenix Municipal Stadium. The Valley's oldest stadium (1964) opened the year the Polo Grounds was demolished, but the light poles from that historic New York ballpark were transported to Phoenix Muni, where they are still used today. That fact is one of many historical footnotes that are written into the cement blocks that make up the stadium's concourse. www.springtrainingconnection.com

You can buy a ticket day of game at the box office with no problem, and avoid the convenience fees, unless the A’s are hosting the Giants or Cubs.
