A Fan’s Guide to Arizona Fall League

A Fan’s Guide to Arizona Fall League

For baseball fans, the Arizona Fall League (AFL) is an undiscovered gem.

Some say it is the way that MLB Spring Training used to be: lots of sun, reasonable ticket prices, plenty of general admission seats, a relaxed atmosphere, an up close opportunity to take photos, and get lots of autographs. Throw in some night games, lots of great restaurants in the Phoenix, AZ area, off-season rates for lodging and it is a recipe for baseball nirvana!

Coors Field – Colorado Rockies

Coors Field – Colorado Rockies

Coors Field is the home of the Colorado Rockies of the National League West division of MLB (Major League Baseball).  Coors Field celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2015.  Still a new stadium, yes?  Even so, it is the third oldest National League ballpark in MLB only being built after Wrigley Field (1914) and Dodgers Stadium (1962) and before all the other current National League baseball parks.   The stadium is a similar architecture of Camden Yards with the red brick and the green seats.  Coors Field was the first stadium where outfield seats were placed facing towards the infield (it was an innovative idea at the time).
