Oakland Athletics 2015 Spring Training: If You Go …
The Oakland Athletics will be returning to Mesa for spring training after spending the last several years at Phoenix Municipal Stadium and Papago Park. It’s a homecoming of sorts: the A’s formerly trained at Rendezvous Park, the predecessor to HoHoKam Park. So you can expect plenty of references to A’s history at HoHoKam Park, which is being renovated for the team’s arrival.
While HoHoKam Park will be spiffed up for the A’s, there’s a carryover issue: there’s really not much of a surrounding neighborhood at HoHoKam Park. There is, of course, the cemetery across the street. But there are other cool areas of Mesa to visit aside from HoHoKam Park — downtown is particularly nice — and, of course, you’re not too far from Tempe or Scottsdale. We describe the Tempe party and bar area in our Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim page, and we discuss downtown Scottsdale in our San Francisco Giants coverage.
Where to Stay: Any hotel in Mesa proper will work. You can also stay by the airport or in Tempe.
Flying In: The closest airport is Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. It’s served by all the major airlines, including United, Delta, Air Canada, American, US Airways, and Southwest. It’s a pleasant enough airport.
