2/22 Tickets available for AZ games
If you haven’t made plans to come to Arizona for Spring Training, you might want to reconsider. There are tickets available. Cactus League president Robert Brinton said he expects attendance to be down this spring, partly because of economy.
“Overall, the economic impact is more than $300 million every year and that’s a significant factor for our state,” Brinton told Phoenix radio station, KTAR. “The economy is having an effect but ticket sales are starting to come through which indicates that fans are maybe holding onto their money a little longer. But when it comes right down to it, we’re still going to see good attendance at Spring Training games.”
There’s a new team in Arizona with the addition of the Cincinnati Reds, who will share a facility in Goodyear with the Cleveland Indians. The Cubs begin games on March 4, playing host to Oakland at HoHoKam Park.
