We have some book news to pass along: We are now taking pre-orders for The Complete Guide to Spring Training 2017 / Arizona, and as a reward we will throw in free shipping this month as a reward for your interest and support!
This book is both for the hardcore baseball fan – who goes to spring training to scout out their favorite team in depth – as well as the more casual fan who heads to spring training more in search of the perfect suntan than in search of this year’s spring phenom. While the hardcores just want to know the shortest route between their hotel and the ballpark, the casual fan knows that the richness of spring training is augmented with visits to local restaurants, shopping areas, and area attractions.
This book covers the 15 Cactus League teams playing out of 10 training camps: Camelback Ranch-Glendale (Chicago White Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers), Goodyear Ballpark (Cincinnati Reds, Cleveland Indians), Hohokam Stadium (Oakland Athletics), Maryvale Baseball Park (Milwaukee Brewers), Peoria Stadium (San Diego Padres, Seattle Mariners), Salt River Fields (Arizona Diamondbacks, Colorado Rockies), Scottsdale Stadium (San Francisco Giants), Sloan Park (Chicago Cubs), Surprise Stadium (Kansas City Royals, Texas Rangers), and Tempe Diablo Stadium (Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim), as well as Phoenix Municipal Stadium, home of the Arizona State University Sun Devils. Also covered: exhibition games in Las Vegas and San Antonio.
Each chapter features:
- Best seats in each ballpark, whether you want comfort, shade, accessibility or autographs
- Ballpark tips
- Must-sees before and after the games
- Training information, to plan a trip before the games start
- Travel tips: Low fares at nearby airports, alternative routes (beat the traffic!) and freeway shortcuts
- College games: create your own day-night doubleheaders!
- Points of interest for the baseball history fan
- Changes for spring training 2018
This 224-page book has been totally revamped for spring training 2017, with pricing, ballpark offerings and information updated. Do not buy this book if you want 2017 schedules: they’re not released. But if you want planning information and tips for making those hotel and condo reservations, this guide will be an indispensable guide.
Currently this book is available for preorder, with shipping expected before the end of October (yes, we’re working to get it out ASAP!). Order it this month and we’ll throw in free shipping! We expect to have eBook versions (Kindle, B&N, Apple) available by the end of the week.
