Spring Training History

Honus Wagner Card

 

The very first Spring Training game played in Arizona was in 1929. The Detroit Tigers hosted the Pittsburgh Pirates in Phoenix on the afternoon of March 26.

Sam Greene, of The Sporting News, wrote in the January 17, 1929 , “Tigers return to Phoenix to face the Pirates March 26th, and the Cubs the following day. That night the team will leave Phoenix for good and make its way home…”

 

There was no Cactus League at this time. The Cactus League’s origins only trace back to the late ’40s. Horace Stoneham of the Giants and Bill Veeck of the Indians were instrumental in bringing the game to Arizona in the spring of 1947. Both men like to take credit, it seems. 

But all that is history. Let’s play ball!

Mirage Limousines has been doing Valentine limo rides for a long time.  Check out this Valentine’s ideas video from ABC 15.

It’s titled, “Valentine’s Day date on a millionaire’s budget: What could you buy?” But you don’t have to be a millionaire to be treated like one.

Happy Valentine's Day from Mirage Limousines-Get your Valentine's Limos & Party Buses now!What is Valentine’s Day?

You probably did not know that Valentine’s Day is also Arizona Statehood Day. Yes, Arizona, the 48th state, was born on February 14, 1912.

The history of territorial Arizona, as well as its rise to statehood and beyond, is presented at the Arizona Capitol Museum in the Downtown Phoenix government complex. It is free to visit.

You may also want to stop across the street at Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza, to see the many individuals who made significant contributions to the state and the Arizona 9-11 Memorial which is also located there. Learn more here.

St-Valentine-Kneeling-In-SupplicationValentine’s Day is said to commemorate St Valentine who was martyred on February 14, 273. Many of the current legends that characterize Saint Valentine were invented in the fourteenth century when the feast day of February 14 first became associated with romantic love.

During the Middle Ages, it was believed that birds paired in mid-February. This was then associated with the romance of Valentine. Although all these legends may differ in ways, Valentine’s day is widely recognized as a day for romance and devotion. (Wikipedia)

Many believe that Valentine’s Day may have been created in an attempt to supersede the pagan holiday of Lupercalia (celebrated in mid-February in Rome.)  Lupercalia was celebrated to avert evil spirits and purify the city, releasing health and fertility.

As part of the celebration many noble youth and magistrates would “run up and down through the city naked, for sport and laughter striking those they meet with shaggy thongs.”

No one is asking you to go naked. At least not in the street. but you are encouraged to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your loved one. Read on to see some of the best things to do on this day and on the weekend just before this auspicious day.

Start a Holiday Light Tour Tradition



Create Holiday Memories

Arizona is famous for spectacular holiday light shows. If you haven’t already, start a holiday tradition. View the lights in a limo or party bus.

Since the winter weather in Phoenix is so moderate, businesses and families can take their time and put together fabulous holiday light displays.

Many of these holiday light displays will grow year after year. Since the mild winter does very little damage to holiday decorations here in the desert. These decorations can last for years.

This means holiday decorating aficionados can just add to their displays year after year, instead of having to replace decorations damaged by the ice and snow. Just one of the many benefits of our mild Arizona winters.
