Spring Training

Post Date:02/28/2018 12:26 PM

It's the most wonderful time of year -- spring training! Fifteen Major League Baseball teams train in the Phoenix area and we host two of them right here in Mesa: the Chicago Cubs and the Oakland A’s.

Attending a spring training game at one of the Mesa stadiums? Avoid the parking stress and take a free shuttle from Downtown Mesa.

Explore the library's collections to expand your knowledge! Here are a few of our favorites:
