A state-of-the-art baseball facility like no other, Camelback Ranch-Glendale celebrates its eleventh season as Spring Training home of the Chicago White Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers in 2019. Located on 141 acres at Ballpark Blvd. and Camelback Road, this Sonoran Desert-inspired facility offers baseball fans more than top-quality playing fields and facilities; the site also features picturesque walking trails, landscaped grounds, citrus groves, and extensive water features.
The first-rate baseball complex includes more than 118,000 square feet of Major and Minor League clubhouse space, 13 full baseball fields and three half-fields. One of the largest facilities in the Cactus League, Camelback Ranch-Glendale's main stadium boasts a capacity of 13,000, which includes 3,000 lawn seats, 12 luxury suites and a party deck. Prior to the 2018 season, the complex added two 100-foot shade structures on the first base concourse and a state-of-the-art 30' x 50' Daktronics videoboard.
Cool Features at "The Ranch"
Water everywhere: A 1,300-foot, 5-acre lake system with river serves the dual purpose of irrigation for fields and site landscaping. The lake utilizes reclaimed water and is stocked with fish.
Architecture: Natural stone veneers, tri-color faux staining, rusty metal panels, Gabion wall systems, earth-tone (caramel) stadium seat color and other appointments blend with the natural desert colors of Arizona. Construction utilizes sweeps and angles instead of a big-box look.
Replica Home Fields: Two of the 12 practice fields (four Major League, eight Minor League) are replica fields of the Dodgers and White Sox home ballparks with exact dimensions of Dodger Stadium and Guaranteed Rate Field, respectively.
Sight Lines: Stadium playing field is sunk 12 feet below grade. Stadium seating is elevated 12 feet above grade to provide unobstructed sightlines.
Citrus Groves: A touch of old Dodgertown in Florida, Southern California and Arizona, citrus groves dot the east side of the property on the Dodgers side of the complex.
Photo Opps-A-Plenty: Along the river separating each side of the facility, each team has placards honoring their All-Stars at every position throughout history. There are also life-size bobbleheads of Hall of Famers Tommy Lasorda and Frank Thomas, and 6-foot tall team logos - perfect selfie spots to help you remember your visit.
