Surprise Stadium is one of the newest Spring Training facilities in the Phoenix area, built in 2002. It holds 10,500 people and is the Spring Training home facility for the Texas Rangers and the Kansas City Royals.
Spring is a great time of year for so many reasons. The blooming of the trees and the flowers, the cold, brisk afternoons turning into warm, wonderful days, and best of all - MLB spring training is in full force. Fans from all over the world head out to their favorite spring training facilities to get a chance to see their team heroes, and the heroes-to-be all getting their arms warmed up and bats swinging for the new season. Whether you head out to Arizona to catch Cactus League action, or cheer on the Grapefruit League teams in Florida, here is your chance to see your team in smaller venues, which will get you a lot closer to the action on the field.
