Cleveland Guardians 2022 Spring Training: If You Go …
If you came to Arizona to escape Ohio…well, you picked the wrong spot to watch a ballgame. The legendary Skyline Chili dog is available, just like it is at Great American Ball Park, and you can top other dogs with Bertman Ballpark Mustard, just like you can at Progressive Field.
The beer selection is OK: mostly MillerCoors corporate brews, with some pretty decent crafts beers thrown in, including offerings from New Belgium, Pyramid, and Firestone Walker.
The southwest corner of Phoenix – especially the communities along I-10, including Goodyear and Avondale – tend to be dominated by planned communities, big-box retailers, and plenty of chain developments. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but you don’t travel hundreds of miles to do what you can do at home.
So your choice is simple: stay in the area and make the best of things, or hunker down in Phoenix or a more centrally located area and drive out to games. If staying in Phoenix is not sufficiently alluring, you may want to check out a resort like the Wigwam Golf Resort & Spa (300 E. Wigwam Blvd., Litchfield Park, 623/935-3811; wigwamarizona.com), a 400-acre, 331-room complex with three 18-hole championship courses. The resort dates back to 1929 but has been seriously upgraded in recent years. There are other clusters of hotels in Glendale and Peoria; check out our Dodgers/White Sox and Mariners/Padres pages for more information.
Two watering holes are a short drive from the ballpark. Augie’s Sports Grill (15605 W. Roosevelt St., Goodyear) is a good destination during March Madness, with multiple TV screens providing the action. The food is strictly pub grub, but the drinks are cheap (particularly during Happy Hour, which runs daily through 7 p.m.). Saddle Mountain Brewing Company (15651 W. Roosevelt St., Goodyear) is just up Estrella Parkway from the ballpark. There is an aviation theme to the beers and décor, and as a result the beers are all in the Taildragger line. There’s both indoor and outdoor seating, perfect for a post-game snort.
Where to Stay: There are no hotels within walking distance of the ballpark, but there are plenty as you get close to I-10.
