Arizona Diamondbacks 2018 Season

Wednesday, February 21, 2018 @ 8:00 am - Tuesday, March 27, 2018 @ 5:00 pm MST

The Arizona Diamondbacks announced their 34-game Spring Training schedule, which features 19 home games and three road games at the award-winning Salt River Fields at Talking Stick and two exhibition games at Chase Field. This season will mark the eighth year at the shared Spring Training facility with fellow 2017 Postseason participant Colorado Rockies on Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community land near Scottsdale.

The D-backs open their 21st Spring Training with D-backs Fan Fest on Saturday, Feb. 17 at Salt River Fields and kick off the spring schedule on Feb. 21 with an exhibition game against Arizona State University at 1:10 p.m. as part of an annual Collegiate Baseball Series. In the first year of the collegiate series in 2015, the D-backs played Arizona State University as part of the series that rotates opponents between Arizona’s three Division I NCAA baseball programs – ASU, University of Arizona and Grand Canyon University (GCU).

The D-backs officially open Cactus League play on Feb. 23 with a road game against the Colorado Rockies at Salt River Fields and will host the Cleveland Indians for the first D-backs home game on Feb. 24. The D-backs have 12 games against their National League West rivals with six games against the Colorado Rockies and two games each against the San Francisco Giants, San Diego Padres and the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Tickets for all games at Salt River Fields are priced from $13-$40. General admission Banana Boat Lawn seating, which holds 4,000 people, will start at $13, and tickets for 7,000 reserved seats in the seating bowl will start at $24. The D-backs Plan offers tickets for each of their 17 home games at Salt River Fields that range in price from $208-$544. The two exhibition games held at Chase Field are not included in the Spring Training season ticket package but are available in the D-backs’ regular season ticket packages.

Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community members and D-backs and Rockies season-ticket holders may purchase season-ticket plans for Spring Training games at Salt River Fields exclusively, between Dec. 14-16. Season-ticket plans for the D-backs’ 17 home games and all 33 Spring Training games at Salt River Fields featuring the D-backs and Rockies, including the D-backs vs. ASU game, will go on sale to the public beginning Dec. 18.

Individual game tickets for all 33 games at Salt River Fields will go on sale beginning at 10 a.m. on Jan. 6. Tickets can be purchased in person at the Salt River Fields Ticket Office, at dbacks.com/spring or by calling 888.490.0383 or 480.362.WINS (9467).

Salt River Fields is the first Spring Training facility built on Native American land. Owned by the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, the 140-acre site near the Pima-Loop 101 Freeway and Talking Stick Way consists of separate training facilities and clubhouses accommodating each team as well as an 11,000-seat ballpark featuring a uniquely designed roof structure offering fans in the cross aisle plenty of shade. Salt River Fields at Talking Stick is a signature property within the Talking Stick Entertainment District, which is also home to Talking Stick Resort & Casino, Talking Stick Golf Club, OdySea Aquarium, iFLY indoor skydiving and much more.

Among the recent awards given to Salt River Fields at Talking Stick are “Best Spring Training Facility” by Arizona Foothills magazine for the sixth consecutive year, featured as one of the “25 must-see buildings in Arizona” by the Arizona Republic (2017), ”Best Cactus League Ballpark” by Ballpark Digest (2016 & 2017), “Best Spring Training Food” by Phoenix Magazine (2017), “Best Spring Training Destination” by Sports On Earth (2016), “#1 Spring Training Facility” by Concierges magazine, and “Best Place to See a Spring Training Game” by Phoenix New Times (2016). In 2014 Stadium Journey named Salt River Fields both the “Best Cactus League Ballpark” and “Top Stadium Experiences of the Year.” USA Today awarded Scottsdale the “Best Spring Training City” (2014) and in 2015 TripAdvisor gave the complex a Certificate of Excellence.

Salt River Fields has led the Cactus League in attendance for seven consecutive seasons, welcoming more than 300,000 fans each year and is still the only Major League Baseball Spring Training complex ever to break 300,000 fans in a season. It is also the first Spring Training facility to receive a gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Program and the first Spring Training complex to be built on Native American land.
