Know Where To Go
Spring training started in February 21, but it’s not too late to watch your favorite teams. The Cactus League will go on until March 26.
First things first: list your favorite teams and know where they’re going to play. Make sure to buy tickets long before the game date so you don’t miss out on good seats.
Traffic this season is crazy and the parking situation is worse, so make sure you plan in advance, taking traffic and weather into consideration, especially if you’re watching with kids.
