An all-encompassing guide to Texas Rangers spring training

The airport seemed pretty busy Thursday night, with more people arriving than leaving.

They probably weren’t all going to their favorite MLB team’s spring camp, but some of them were judging by team apparel being worn.

The amount of Rangers fans at the Surprise Recreation Campus has also grown over the past week.

Cactus League games started Friday. Actually, the Rangers and Royals were two of only four teams in Arizona to play. They were all scheduled for Saturday and most days going forward until camp breaks March 26.

Plenty of Rangers Today readers have said they will be in Surprise at some point this spring. 

This is my 25th spring training and 16th as a beat man. Growing up in Colorado before the Rockies existed, my family made the trek to Arizona for nine straight spring breaks to see far fewer teams than were in Florida at the time.

So, spring training is special to me, and I can’t endorse it enough as fun family vacation for anyone who loves baseball.

What follows are my pro tips for coming to spring training. Use them wisely and enjoy your time in Arizona.
