Can you believe that baseball season is already here? Your 2009 Dbacks have been training hard this spring training to bring their fans the excitement of regular season baseball. For those of you that may have been disappointed with some of the teamâ€™s performances this spring, we have some comforting news. The Diamondbacks have not always fared well in Cactus League play and although competitive, Spring Training is really no indication of how the team will do. So, please don’t let that keep you from cheering on your team.
This Monday, April 6th marks opening day for the Dbacks as they take on the Colorado Rockies at Chase Field. The game begins at 12:40 PM as Arizona kicks off their regular season. The Diamondbacks play two more games against the Rockies before squaring off against the Los Angeles Dodgers later in the week.
Our Team is Special
In addition to being a championship caliber team, the Diamondbacks boast the most inexpensive tickets in the Major Leagues. They are able to keep costs low by the high success rates that they have had on season ticket renewals. If you have been to the ballpark, you would agree that there is not a bad seat in the house. So, get out there to cheer on the familiar faces and the new talent as the Dbacks take on the rest of the National League for 2009.
How to Get There
While there is plenty of parking around the stadium look to pay $10 or more for parking. Additionally, getting out of the nearby parking is nothing like getting out of Dodger Stadium but it can get pretty busy. While the City of Phoenix has done an excellent job of addressing the traffic situation, we recommend riding the Metro Light Rail.
Valley residents can park for free at park and ride locations and take the Light Rail in to downtown Phoenix. By taking the Light Rail into Chase Field, you can avoid the congestion on your way home and most of all, its fun!
From Phoenix – You can take the rail in to the 3rd and Jefferson stop, which is right near the stadium.
From East Valley – You will get off at 3rd and Washington, which is about a block away on the opposite side of the street.
Important: Remember to go to the opposite stops for the way home. Addition information on navigating this part of the Light Rail can be found here.
