The Colorado Rockies announced their 31-game 2018 Cactus League schedule today, featuring 16 home games and three road games at the award-winning Salt River Fields at Talking Stick. The 2018 Cactus League season will be the club's eighth year at the shared Spring Training facility with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community land near Scottsdale.
 
Colorado opens their Spring Training schedule as the home team against Arizona at Salt River Fields on Feb. 23, a date that is tied with the 2013 season for the earliest start to Cactus League play in franchise history. The Rockies will conclude their 2018 Spring Training Schedule with a home game against Seattle on March 27 before opening the 2018 regular season on March 29 at Arizona. All Rockies home Spring Training games will begin at 1:10 p.m. local time.
 
Season ticket plans for the Rockies' 16 home games and all 33 Spring Training games at Salt River Fields will go on sale to the public beginning Friday, Dec. 15. Individual tickets for all 33 games at Salt River Fields will go on sale beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 6. Tickets can be purchased at the Salt River Fields at Talking Stick Center Field Ticket Office, the Coors Field Ticket Office, all Rockies Dugout Store locations, online at rockies.com/spring, by calling 888.490.0383 or by calling (480) 362-9467 (WINS).
 
Service charges apply online and over the phone. For additional Rockies Spring Training information, please call (303) ROCKIES (762-5437).
 
Tickets for all games at Salt River Fields are priced from $13-$40. General admission lawn seating, which holds 4,000 people, will be $13-$19 and tickets for 7,000 reserved seats in the seating bowl range from $23-$40. The Rockies Plan, which offers tickets to each of the 16 Rockies home games at Salt River Field, ranges in price from $208-$544.
 
Salt River Fields is the first Spring Training facility built on Native American land. Owned by the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, the 140-acre site near the Pima-Loop 101 Freeway and Talking Stick Way consists of separate training facilities and clubhouses accommodating each team as well as an 11,000-seat ballpark featuring a uniquely designed roof structure offering fans in the cross aisle plenty of shade.
 
Among the recent awards given to Salt River Fields at Talking Stick are "Best Spring Training Facility" by Arizona Foothills magazine for the sixth consecutive year, featured as one of the "25 must-see buildings in Arizona" by the Arizona Republic (2017), "Best Cactus League Ballpark" by Ballpark Digest (2016 & 2017), "Best Spring Training Food" by Phoenix Magazine (2017), "Best Spring Training Destination" by Sports On Earth (2016), "#1 Spring Training Facility" by Concierges magazine, and "Best Place to See a Spring Training Game" by Phoenix New Times (2016). In 2014 Stadium Journey named Salt River Fields both the "Best Cactus League Ballpark" and "Top Stadium Experiences of the Year." USA Today awarded Scottsdale the "Best Spring Training City" (2014) and in 2015 TripAdvisor gave the complex a Certificate of Excellence.
 
Salt River Fields has led the Cactus League in attendance for seven consecutive seasons, welcoming more than 300,000 fans each year and is still the only Major League Baseball Spring Training complex ever to break 300,000 fans in a season. It is also the first Spring Training facility to receive a gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Program and the first Spring Training complex to be built on Native American land.
