Just about everything a fan would want to know about attending a spring training game at any of the Cactus League's 10 ballparks is detailed in this guidebook, so no matter where you go the Arizona Spring Training Ballpark Guide has got you covered.

For starters, the cost of tickets and parking are given, all seating sections are described, and the locations of nearby hotels and restaurants are listed, as are the schedules for each team. But where this book really hits a home run is with its in-depth information that answers fans' most common questions, such as which seats are shaded, where to get autographs, how to buy tickets, when the gates open and what can or cannot be brought into the stadium.

With plenty of pictures to compliment its prose, this book is essential for anyone planning a trip to Arizona for spring training in 2013.

    About the author
    Graham Knight's passion for ballparks is evident in the very Web site that you are browsing, as he launched Baseball Pilgrimages in 2002 and has since written over 80 detailed articles about the individual ballparks that he has visited. During spring training of 2009 he saw a game in each and every Cactus and Grapefruit League ballpark, 26 in all, and that trip inspired this book, now in its 4th edition. Since 1989 he has taken 16 trips to either Arizona or Florida to see spring training, and in 2013 he will once again make more trips.
