|MARYVALE BASEBALL PARK
Despite the name, this ballpark is actually within the city limits of Phoenix: Maryvale is a neighborhood in Phoenix. Maryvale Baseball Stadium is a modest facility, to be sure: it holds only 8,000 folks (7,000 seats, plus 1,000 or so on lawn seating), it's home to only one spring-training team, and uses a familiar layout of a rear concourse with concessions in back of the seating area. The 56-acre complex features of five full major/minor league practice facilities, two half-field practice facilities, a major-league clubhouse, and a minor-league clubhouse.
The area is especially spacious: when Phoenix worked with Ellerbe Becket to design the facility, the plan was to house two teams in the complex.
Spring Training History
The Milwaukee Brewers have spent every spring training in Arizona, a stretch beginning when the team was the Seattle Pilots: in 1969 the team's history began with spring training in Tempe, which lasted through 1972. This was followed by springs in Sun City (1973-1985), Chandler (1986-1997) and then Phoenix (1998-present).
