Sedona Red Letter Day

It has been 56 days since the last home game for the Arizona Diamondbacks which is almost 2 months without baseball. The Diamondbacks are more than likely not going to be factors in the free agent market and other than the trade with the Milwaukee Brewers yesterday, they are probably not going to make many deals this off season. All of this adds up to a very long winter without much to get excited about. All that changed with the announcement that the Cactus League schedule was being released. Finally something to look forward to! I rushed out to the www.cactusleague.com to begin planning my spring training trip to see the Diamondbacks.


Arizona begins spring training games on Thursday March 1 when the play the Chicago White Sox at Tucson Electric Park. Their first six games will be in Tucson where they play the White Sox, White Sox, Mariners, Rockies, and Giants. The Diamondbacks make their first trip to the valley of the sun on Tuesday March 6 to play the San Diego Padres at Peoria Sports Complex in a night game. March 7 the Diamondbacks play the Texas Rangers in Surprise in a traditional afternoon game. They return to Tucson for games on March 8 and March 9 against the Los Angeles Angels and Chicago White Sox respectively. March 10 the Diamondbacks visit the Milwaukee Brewers for the first time since their 6 player trade. Arizona plays the Oakland Athletics at Phoenix Municipal Stadium in a night game on Friday March 16 and then play the Kansas City Royals on St. Patrick’s Day afternoon. The Diamondbacks make their only trip to Tempe Diablo Stadium on Wednesday March 21 to face the Angels. They play the San Francisco Giants at Scottsdale Stadium the following day on March 22 in a 1:05 PM contest. The Diamondbacks break came in Tucson on March 29 with a game against the San Diego Padres. Tickets for Spring Training games go on sale at the Tucson Electric Park box office on January 13, 2007.
