Cactus League Spring Training

Mesa is home to two spring training teams in the Cactus League – the Chicago Cubs, which have been part of the fabric since the early 1950s, and the Oakland A’s, a team that recently returned to Mesa and planted roots for decades to come.

The Cubs play at Sloan Park and the Oakland A’s play at Hohokam Stadium. Catch your favorite MLB players all month long at an affordable price.
