Personally, I’m not much of a “major” sports fan. I’m more of a Tour de France and Formula 1 guy.

Spring training is well underway in Scottsdale. There are a couple of weeks’ worth of games remaining. The San Francisco Giants are the “home team” at Scottsdale Municipal Stadium, but we also have the Diamondbacks at home at the new Salt River Fields Stadium on the SRPMIC, and Phoenix Municipal Stadium is the spring training home of the Oakland A’s.
Forbes Magazine recently published a “Weekend Guide to Spring Training in Scottsdale,” that you might enjoy.
