The Hohokam Stadium during spring training charges for parking, and you should always expect the parking lot in the stadium to be full half an hour before the game starts.

Fans within Mesa tend to arrive at the games a lot earlier as tailgating is very popular here, especially since most of the parking lot space is on grass.

Bleachers also exist with backs on them.

Hohokam Stadium had been renovated ahead of the 2015 season when the Oakland A’s had taken over the park.

Depending on the ones who are still available by the time you arrive.

Many games played here, (most especially when the Arizona Diamondbacks are the ones playing), will be very well attended if not sold out.

The gates open at about two hours before the game time.

And people will inevitably arrive early enough to stake out their place on the field and berm.

For nighttime games.

For no reason should you forget to take into account a rush hour traffic on the Loop 101?

You might also want to make an alternate route to get to the stadium in time on those evenings, such as Pima Road, Via de Ventura, or Indian Bend Road.

There are two significant berm seating areas in the stadium was designed for accommodating over 4,000 fans, making it one of the best Cactus league stadiums for the extra-casual fan. Basically, except the center field wall, there is a berm along the whole outfield.

The relieving news here is that if you are early enough, there may be free parking lots close to the Scottsdale library, Civic Center, and on the streets in downtown Scottsdale.

As the game time approaches, probably within an hour of the game. Those small and little streets start getting somewhat tricky and congested.

Stay prepared to walk for several blocks if you are not there in time.

There are other fantastic places to pause and eat and drink probably before or after the game within walking distance.

Most of those restaurants and bars regularly advertise in the stadium.

⚾️ Sloan Park

: Sloan Park’s Official Website

Sloan Park (CUBS PARK) Before 2013, the Chicago Cubs had played their home games during the Cactus League baseball season at the Hohokam Stadium located in Mesa, Arizona.

But during 2014, the Cubs had moved to a brand new stadium not too far away from what was initially known as the Cubs Park.

In 2015, the name had been changed to Sloan Park when the Chicago Sloan Valve Company sponsored the park.

Sloan Park can also host a team during the Arizona Fall League baseball.

About 75% seats at Sloan Park. Even the ones along the baseline toward the outfield, will all be in the shade. This attractive feature makes Sloan among the most comfortable Cactus league stadiums.

However, all the places in the grass or berm are directly facing the sun.

There are fewer seats at the Sloan Park than how there were at the Hohokam Stadium.

But the berm or outfield grass is more abundant.

You will see various nods to the Wrigley field here.

But it is however not meant to be a smaller Chicago stadium version.

For instance, you can notice the brickwork behind the home plate and the big sign where everybody is taking photos shoots.

As well as the rooftop seats inside the party area. The Cubs clubhouse is away from the stadium.

Meaning that fans will be able to view all their favorite players as they walk from the clubhouse to the main stadium before the game
