The Scouting Report
On Thursday, February 27, San Diego and Seattle will open spring training with their 21st-annual charity game. Proceeds from the yearly matchup benefit West Valley charities supported by the non-profit Peoria Diamond Club, which partners with the city of Peoria and their MLB guests to bring spring training baseball to the Peoria Sports Complex. The showdown is the first game for both squads in the Arizona-based Cactus League, a month-long training league in which players use thorny bats, making regular hitting seem much easier once the regular season starts. <p>
Peoria Sports Complex
The spring training home of both San Diego and the Seattle, the Peoria Sports Complex has been helping players develop their skills and shake off off-season rust since 1994. The complex consists of 145 acres that host 12 full-size practice fields, eight covered major-league hitting tunnels, and a full main stadium seating more than 11,000 people in traditional capacity, not including those watching the action via blimp. Fans catch the action from outfield or upper-box seating, watching their big-league heroes field flies and swing for the fences during their annual Cactus League face-offs.
