Spring training at Goodyear Ballpark: Tickets, seating, discounts, parking and food

Spring training also will be a bit shorter this year — teams will play 17 to 22 games in Arizona, down from the usual 30 — between March 17 and April 5. Opening day is April 7.

Here's everything fans should know about Cactus League games at Goodyear Ballpark.

Goodyear Ballpark insider tips

Walk up to Home Plate Plaza and admire a baseball-themed sculpture called "The Ziz." It's 60 feet, 6 inches tall, which is the distance from the pitcher's mound to home plate.

The name for the Hangar 46 concession stand, behind the center field wall, came from the ballpark's backdrop of the Phoenix-Goodyear airport and is a reference to the year Goodyear was incorporated.
