Final Ticket Update, Spring Training 2019

Champion Stadium 2019

For the last few months we’ve been running ticket updates in the Spring Training Online newsletter. Here’s the final availability edition for spring training 2019.

This guide focuses on what could be the busiest weekend of spring training: March 16-17. Based on our visits this month and last, attendance is up in 2019 when compared to 2018. Plan accordingly, especially if you are planning on seeing the Phillies at home or on the road. (Why the Phillies? Bryce Harper’s signing immediately boosted the Phils’ spring ticket sales, both at Spectrum Field and on the road.) But this excitement can be seen across baseball: the Cubs set a spring-training attendance record earlier in March, and Camelback Ranch-Glendale sold out this weekend’s games.

Here’s a rundown of availability:

Arizona Diamondbacks: Limited seating throughout ballpark for March 17 game against the White Sox. The Diamondbacks are a great spring draw and will end up selling out many games; the March 16 game against the Cubs is sold out.
Atlanta Braves: Limited seating in lower bowl for March 17 game against the Houston Astros.
Baltimore Orioles: SRO only for March 17 game against the New York Yankees. Your best bet is to look to the aftermarket; we work with a third party on the ballparkdigesttickets.com site.
Boston Red Sox: March 17 game against the Tampa Bay Rays is sold out. Your best bet is to look to the aftermarket; we work with a third party on the ballparkdigesttickets.com site.
Chicago Cubs: March 17 game against the Colorado Rockies is sold out. Your best bet is to look to the aftermarket; we work with a third party on the ballparkdigesttickets.com site.
Chicago White Sox: March 16 game against the Los Angeles Dodgers is sold out. In fact, Camelback Ranch-Glendale is sold out for the entire St. Pat’s weekend.
Cincinnati Reds: Some sections sold out for March 17 game against the Cleveland Indians, but still good availability throughout ballpark.
Cleveland Indians: Plenty of availability for March 18 game against the San Diego Padres.
Colorado Rockies: Limited availability for March 15 game against the Kansas City Royals.
Detroit Tigers: Very limited availability for March 17 game against the Atlanta Braves. St. Pat’s Day is a holiday among the Tigers faithful, so expect a packed house.
Houston Astros: Plenty of availability for March 15 game against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Kansas City Royals: Plenty of availability for March 16 game against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Los Angeles Angels: Good availability for March 16 game against the Cleveland Indians.

Toronto Blue Jays: Lower bowl sold out, with limited availability in second level for March 17 game against the Minnesota Twins.
Washington Nationals: Plenty of availability for March 17 against the New York Mets.

To repeat: we’re seeing demand for spring-training tickets increase this year over last. If you can’t buy the ticket you want from MLB teams, consider shopping the aftermarket at the ballparkdigesttickets.com site.
