Baseball is a national pastime, and we have a corner on cheap, fun games here in Phoenix with the Cactus League baseball spring training. From February 21 to March 24, 2020, you can attend Major League games for as little as $10.00 per regular-price ticket.
Scroll way down the page to find the best prices for each team, even if you don’t get a discount.
Spring training games give you a chance to get a lot closer to the athletes that are usually on the other side of a big wall at their home stadiums. It’s also a fun family event, where you can relax and watch the game (or not).
Whether you have a favorite team from your childhood (looking at all you Chicago Cubs fans) and know which team you want to see, or you just want to go see whoever’s playing closest, there are great options. But, it can be frustrating to try to find the actual best deals on tickets, although we all know they’re out there. So, I did some legwork for you.

Best prices by team for home games (even without discounts)
Some of the ballparks are always expensive than others, and some game dates are a better deal. Some teams have set up pricing grids so you can compare prices without having to select specific dates and hope for the best.
The Links to Buy Tickets links below will have information about season passes, mini-plans, group purchases, and other information. The Cheapest Prices shown will help you find which games have the lowest prices available. (Not all teams have that option, so there is no link in some cases.)
Sometimes you can see your favorite team at a less expensive stadium, too. For instance, the Diamondbacks tickets are never lower than $15.00 at their home spring training stadium, Salt River Fields. But, you can see them for $8.00 when they play the Royals in the Surprise Stadium, and $7.00 when they play the Padres in the Peoria Sports Complex.
There might be other game dates that are as inexpensive, but usually, there are only a few at that low price. I made a note when it’s a common price.
