About the Cactus League
The Cactus League as a whole is the largest sporting event west of the Mississippi. Every year, more than 13 million people flock to the deserts of Phoenix to partake in baseball nirvana. Fifteen Major League teams make the Valley of the Sun their baseball home for the month of March. The Cactus League stadiums are located very close together, with all 10 stadiums located within a 50 mile radius in the Phoenix area. This close proximity makes the Cactus League a favorite among baseball fans. Any given day a baseball enthusiast can pick from up to 9 major league match-ups, all within a short drive.
There is a certain atmosphere in the spring desert air that is hard to describe; you just have to experience it for yourself. If you get the chance, try to catch a couple of games this season. Enjoy the warm Arizona sun, giant hot dogs, draft beer and Major League baseball in tiny stadiums. It doesn't get any better than this!
