Where is the facility?
The ballpark, shared by the Dodgers and White Sox, is located at 10710 W. Camelback Road in Glendale, Ariz. It can be found just off the 101.

Can fans attend workouts?
Workouts are open to fans and usually present an opportunity to grab autographs as players move back to the clubhouse. The workouts often begin around 9:30 a.m. MST and take place on the White Sox back fields at Camelback Ranch. The team will work out on the main field at times after games get underway. These back fields also host "B" games and eventually Minor League games.
