Mesa, Arizona is located in the center of the state just east of Phoenix. For spring training visitors, the Mesa area offers plenty of reasonable accommodations and dining options while the greater Phoenix area has numerous tourist activities. This section of Arizona is known for its outdoor sports activities and you will find many opportunities for golf at one of the dozen courses near Hohokam Park.
The best reason to come to Hohokam Park is to watch the Chicago Cubs during spring training. The relaxed atmosphere and intimate setting allows fans more access to players and coaches than any other time during the year. While there are time restrictions on autograph sessions and picture requests, the Cubs organization is always welcoming to its spring training fans.
Hohokam Park seats 13,074 and has been hosting the Cubs for 32 years. Hohokam Park seating is split into three general areas. General admission lawn seats cost $8, bleacher seats are $17, and regular admission reserved seating ranges from $15-$30. Games at Hohokam Park start at 1:05PM Arizona time, but be sure to get there early and stay late to take advantage of picture and autograph opportunities.
The premium seats immediately behind home plate are a great value at one-tenth the price of comparable seats during the regular season. These seats do sell out first, so the general admission lawn area is also a good bet. Home runs hit into the lawn area can create a small scramble for the souvenir, so be ready with your glove and running shoes.
The weather in Arizona can get quite hot even during the spring and the sun can be intense during a day game. Drink plenty of water and bring sunscreen to the ballpark. Hohokam Park allows each fan to bring a single, sealed bottle of water to the game so you can save a few dollars if you plan ahead. Umbrellas are not allowed, so make sure you wear a hat to the game.
