Buy Your Tickets in Advance For Weekend Games and Arrive Early
The Giants have arguably the best fan atmosphere for weekend games, especially beyond the outfield wall in the lawn section. Games sell out. And get to the stadium early, there’s a lot of congestion. Don’t miss the first pitch!

A Free Ride
Great ballpark and location, but the one true negative to Scottsdale Stadium's highly visible downtown setting is parking. Spaces are scarce and many of the seemingly available ones near the ballpark are actually reserved for hospital parking. One way to avoid the hassle is to opt for the Giants' Trolley Shuttle, a free service from a pair of locations that begins 90 minutes before game time and concludes 30 minutes after the last pitch. Call 480-312-7696 for details.
Sit In The Shade
Buy seats ahead of time and make sure you sit under the shade, which makes a difference as it gets pretty hot
