The Padres preseason is not in California but at small ballparks in Arizona. Even though no Spring Training games are held at Petco Park, we provide this valuable guide because it seems important for any Padres insider to know. There is something magical about watching Spring Training. It seems to distill baseball down to its purest essentials.
Pitchers & Catchers ReportWhen do San Diego Padres pitchers and catchers report for Spring Training?
Traditionally MLB pitchers and catchers report to spring training in mid-February, ahead of the rest of the roster.
Padres Spring Training
The San Diego Padres play their "home" Spring Training games at the Peoria Sports Complex at 16101 N. 83rd Avenue in Peoria, a suburb of Phoenix, Arizona. The venue has a capacity of approximately 12,300. They share the stadium with the Seattle Mariners. The Padres also play "away" games in Scottsdale, Mesa, Phoenix, Goodyear and Surprise. None is too far a drive from each other.
The Padres are part of the Cactus League, comprised of the 15 American League and National League teams who prepare in Arizona for the MLB season. The experience is an easy road-trip or quick flight away.
Spring Training is a great way to meet baseball players as well — both on the field and off. Keep your eyes peeled in your downtime around town.
