Spring Training History
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!

The last Saturday of the season is April Fool’s Day. But we are not fooling. If you haven’t made it yet then this is it! That day the Mariners battle the Rockies at Talking Stick.
