Indians Spring Training 2012: Stadium, Cactus League Map And More

In 2009, the Cleveland Indians moved their spring training base from Winter Haven, Fla. to Goodyear, Az, where a state-of-the-art 10,000-seat stadium had been built.

Goodyear BallPark is part of a $108 million training facility that hosts both the Cleveland Indians and the Cincinnati Reds during spring training. The ballpark is located on the western edge of the greater Phoenix area in the booming town of Goodyear. Via Springtrainingonline.com:

Goodyear Ballpark is a deceptively simple ballpark, even for a spring-training facility. The ballpark consists of a grandstand, seating extending down each line to the foul poles, wraparound concourse, concession booth as part of the batters' eye, a large outfield berm, and a right-field party deck sitting on top of the clubhouses and batting cages.

Both teams play in the Cactus League, a 15-team spring training league based in the Phoenix-metropolitan area. The Cactus League will open play on March 2, with the Indians and the Reds playing their first game at Goodyear Ballpark the following day. For the complete schedule, visit cactusleauge.com. There you will also find a map of all the stadiums of the Cactus League.
