Padres Spring Training Guide

[Please see updates on postponements and cancellations.]

Padres Spring Training takes place in February and March 2020 at small ballparks in Arizona. No Spring Training games are held at Petco Park but we provide this valuable guide because it seems important for any Petco Park Insider to know. There is something magical about watching Spring Training. It seems to distill baseball down to its purest essentials.

Padres Spring Training Tickets

The San Diego Padres play their “home” Spring Training games at the Peoria Sports Complex at 16101 N. 83rd Avenue in Peoria AZ, a suburb of Phoenix. 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 eachother. Get your tickets here!

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. Once there, Lyft is a great way to get to stadiums. Especially if you are drinking.

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.

Spring Training Weather

Be mindful of desert weather, which means: lots of sun, and often hotter and colder than you might expect. Bring layers, hats, sunscreen. And stay hydrated. In between the incredible craft beer selections and delicious food, be sure to drink that water!
