Camelback Ranch-Glendale celebrated a successful 10th season in 2018. The Spring Training home of the Chicago White Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers saw attendance increases for both teams and introduced new fan amenities.
The White Sox and Dodgers combined to draw 238,783 fans this spring, eclipsing the 200,000 mark for the ninth time in the facility's 10-year history. With an 8.1 percent uptick in average attendance, Camelback Ranch enjoyed the largest per-game increase of all Cactus League complexes.
Welcoming an average of 10,154 fans per game in 2018, the Dodgers' 10.2 percent growth in average attendance was the largest jump for any individual team in the Cactus League. The reigning National League champions moved from fourth to third place in the league's attendance rankings.
The White Sox increased their average attendance by 6.9 percent, hosted two sellouts and showcased the young talent that has earned the organization widespread recognition as one of the most exciting rebuilds in baseball.
Two major stadium improvements were highlights of the milestone season: A 30' x 50' Daktronics videoboard provided fans with an upgraded visual and interactive experience, and two new 100' shade canopies dramatically improved the amount of shaded seating options at the ballpark.
Camelback Ranch-Glendale will continue to host White Sox and Dodgers Minor League games into the summer, as the facility is home to Extended Spring Training play (April - early June) and the Arizona Rookie League (mid-June - early September).
