A state-of-the-art baseball facility like no other, Camelback Ranch - Glendale (Ariz.) is the Spring Training home of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago White Sox. Located on 141 acres at 111th Avenue and Camelback Road, this Sonoran Desert-inspired, two-team facility offers baseball fans more than top-quality playing fields and facilities; the site also features picturesque walking trails, landscaped grounds and an orange grove. Guests will also enjoy water features and a fully stocked lake between the Dodgers and White Sox facilities.
The first-rate baseball facility includes more than 118,000 square feet of Major and Minor League clubhouse space, 13 full baseball fields and three half-fields. It is also the largest in the Cactus League with a capacity of 13,000, which includes 3,000 lawn seats, 12 luxury suites and a party deck. Fans enjoy the ballpark's modern amenities and design as well as dramatic mountain views that create one of the most inviting Spring Training atmospheres in all of baseball.
Located just across the Loop 101 from Glendale's Sports and Entertainment District, this facility complements the existing amenities in the area, providing additional venues and entertainment options to an area already expected to generate a regional economic impact of more than $1 billion over the next two years. An economic impact study conducted by Economic Research Associates estimated that moving the Dodgers and White Sox to Glendale will pump as much as $19 million per year into the region.
This unprecedented project partners two of the state's largest cities (Glendale and Phoenix) in an effort to benefit an entire region. It provides baseball fans, residents and tourists a full array of activities and creates economic and tourism opportunities that make the region's newest sports and entertainment district like no other in the country.
