Just as an oven needs to pre-heat before baking a tray of jalapeño poppers, baseball players need to raise their internal temperatures to 400 degrees before opening day. Today’s Groupon basks in the nine-inning joys of spring training: for $22, you get two baseline tickets (a $40 value) to one of four ballgames at Camelback Ranch in Glendale. You can also get two baseline field box tickets for $30 (a $56 value). Watch the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Chicago White Sox hammer out their 2010 starting lineups as they play under the springtime aroma of fresh-cut grass, hot dogs, and remorse. All available games begin at 1 p.m.
Ever since Abner Doubleday invented baseball as a sporty pairing for the recently invented season of summer, the Arizonan spring has hosted the athletic fecundity of pin stripes and grand slams. Camelback Ranch is a stunning testament to the beauty of baseball diamonds, with its natural rock walls, digital scoreboard, and grassy lawns for pre-game tailgating. As the Sox prepare to make their presence known in the AL Central, the Dodgers will seek to repair last post-season’s NLCS blues. Both teams will be testing their stars as well as their younger prospects in pursuit of a pair of pennants.
With bocce ball resulting in hundreds of deaths each year due to lax safety regulations, baseball remains the nation’s outdoor pastime. Whether you wear your cap straight, backward, on your feet, or inside out because you love a late-inning underdog, inaugurate spring’s official renewal with an afternoon of home runs, steals, slides, line drives, pop flies, double plays, multi-ball rounds, love triangles with evil twins, and impromptu dance-offs.
The Arizona Republic published a story about Camelback Ranch, which received an Editor’s Choice Award from Ballparkdigest.com. Baseballparks.com also reviewed the sprawling complex: > * If you go, be prepared to make a day of it. You’ll want to give yourself plenty of time to meander your way through the complex before the game, and it will take some time to make your way back to your car after the game. (Once there, it shouldn’t take long to leave the ballpark; Camelback Road between the complex and the free was widened to four lanes and a center turn lane to accommodate spring-training crowds.) But go: Camelback Ranch will provide one of the most scenic spring-training experiences in all of baseball. – Ballparkdigest.com > * This 141-acre complex seems to go on and on, and the ballpark that is the centerpiece (although by no means is it in its center) seems gargantuan…especially when you consider that it was constructed for spring training, not the regular season. – Baseballparks.com
Yelpers give Camelback Ranch four stars: > * Absolutely beautiful stadium! My first time at Spring Training, and won’t be my last! The building lies low and flat, mimicking the desert terrain, almost highlighting the mountains behind it. – Alicia K., Yelp
