We're regulars in Arizona for Cactus League action in the spring. Have been for years. We have the routine down -- restaurants to go to, ballparks to see and knowledge of the hotspots in the desert.
So when the Dodgers move from Dodgertown in Vero Beach, Fla. to Arizona for Spring Training next month, catching a game at the new stadium is a must because, hey, ballparks are our favorite kind of museum.
While you can see a game in Peoria (Mariners, Padres) or Surprise (Rangers, Royals) and sit in the best seats in the quaint parks for about $30, a ticket at the Dodgers' new Glendale stadium will cost you a pretty penny.
After announcing the team's spring-training schedule the Dodgers also announced the top ticket for spring training was $125 for a premium (i.e., weekend) game. Almost 700 seats for every game will be sold at that price.We opted for the seats in the $40-$50 range. That's about, oh, 30 bucks too much for a game full of minor leaguers anyway. So for $125? Yikes!
We remind you: THE GAMES DON'T FUCKING COUNT!
