Tips

Seating
All seats are good and most are cheaper than other Valley teams. There is good value to be had with the tickets. Good seats: This is a stadium where all the seats are good seats. The seats between the dugouts are good size, comfortable and have backs on them. Cup holders would be nice, but we can live without them. Down the line seats: For under $15, you can get a nice seat behind the dugouts. Uecker seats: No seat is bad here. It is a very fan friendly place. Lawn seats: For $5 – you can't beat it. Not crowded. Relaxed. Great chance of getting a Ryan Braun shot. But beware that the lawn is very very steep. Also some lawn seats available along the 1 st base side. Wise seating tip: Sit behind the 1 st base or 3 rd base dugout if you can….all the action is there. The Brewers give away things at the end of nearly every inning and most of it comes from the top of the dugouts. T-shirts, hats, you name it. 

Sausage Race
The best in-game entertainment in baseball. Period. No comparison. Once you've seen one, you'll want it at every baseball game thereafter. During spring training they shorten the run. They only run from the right outfield corner to home plate, but during the season in Milwaukee – it's a marathon, completely around the entire warning track dugout to dugout. After the race, go to the mezzanine and get your photograph taken with the Sausages.  

Location
We love the stadium, the practice complex, and the atmosphere of the games – but the location of the place is in a pretty rough part of Phoenix . Don't worry as the parking has always appeared safe and secure. But the area is just not good for after-game events. Be prepared to leave the area after the game.  

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 Brewers game, fans can visit either of our central Phoenix locations at 75 th Ave & Thomas or in Downtown at Central Ave & Indian School Rd .  www.macayo.com

Sneak A Free Peak, Seriously
There’s a small area near the main (home plate) entrance that allows you to see the field in front of you through some steel bars. The field is below street level so you can sneak a free peak, basically. This is also a good place where a scalper or Joe fan may approach you, looking to dump a ticket at half price or even for like $5 or even for nothing.

A Fan-Friendly Ballpark With Fan-Friendly Ushers
The Brewers' spring training ballpark is often referred to as a hidden gem and that's partially because the team perennially ranks near the bottom in Cactus League home attendance. So, excepting for when the Cubs pay a visit, you don't need to pay for tickets in advance. And when you do buy them, the cheap seats will do just fine as the ushers in Maryvale are as lenient as they come. On days that crowds are sparse you can sit where you like when you like regardless of what your ticket says. Or you can choose to stay put, as there's not really a bad seat in the house.
Graham Knight, author of the Arizona Spring Training Ballpark Guide 

Join the chain gang
I know plenty of people who avoid chain restaurants while traveling. But, what about chains you don't normally frequent? The Phoenix area has plenty that haven't made their way to Milwaukee yet, including Jamba Juice, Baja Fresh, Sweet Tomatoes (a personal favorite) and In-N-Out Burger.

Simply the best
It almost pains me to give up this secret, but my favorite Mexican restaurant in the world -- and one of my favorites overall -- is Los Dos Molinos, 8684 S. Central Ave. This family-owned spot is crowded nearly every night, particularly during spring training, and is closed Sunday and Monday, which adds to the crowding. They cook with Hatch chiles from New Mexico, so the food is hot -- but delicious. The salsa and sangria are fresh and tasty. The carnitas (slow roasted pork), shrimp Veracruz and blue corn enchiladas are worth the wait.

Check out the kids
The Brewers' minor-league complex is located across the parking lot from the main stadium at Maryvale Baseball Park and it's fun to check out the prospects in pre-game practice or in a game. The mood is very low-key, but access is amazing. You might just stumble upon the next Ryan Braun or Yovani Gallardo.
