Victory-at-verrado-Spring Training GraphicSpring Training is back, and we are lucky enough to be in the mecca of it all. For Verrado residents and veteran Phoenicians, welcoming back the sights and sounds of Spring Training is a longstanding tradition.

Over fifteen teams call the Cactus League home for Spring, giving the Valley of the Sun the highest concentration of professional baseball facilities in the country.  With all ten stadiums in convenient driving distance of Victory, there are plenty of opportunities to cruise the valley and enjoy the warm weather while rooting for your favorite team.

Of course, as avid fans ourselves, the Victory crew isn’t going to miss out on the Spring Training action. With both the City of Surprise and Goodyear Spring Training programs right in Verrado’s backyard, we want to make sure we are showing our support. So, when you drop by to check out a Royals, Rangers, Indians or Reds game this spring, you may see our ads on the jumbotron, find us in the program, or even catch our team at the Victory Central booth at select games (see dates below).

This year is as exciting as usual, with the Chicago Cubs debuting their all-new Wrigley-style Cub’s Park in nearby Mesa, and the city of Scottsdale throwing the 2014 Spring Training Festival featuring interactive exhibits, a hot dog challenge and sports memorabilia show on Saturday, February 22. Not to mention the nearly 200 games on the schedule throughout March.

Opening Day for the Cactus League is February 27, so be sure to look at the schedule and get your tickets today.
