1. Batting Cages
Catch your favorite Royals hitting in the batting cages on the concourse during the game. The cages are located behind a food court on the third base side of the ballpark, and are a can’t-miss for die-hard Royals fans.
2. Hall of Fame
Make sure to check out the Hall of Fame plaques along the covered part of the main concourse. The plaques celebrate both the Royals and Rangers award winners from over the years, so don’t miss them during your trip to Surprise Stadium.
3. Baseball Quotes
Take a stroll around the concourse to see signs filled with famous baseball quotes. Quotes from Babe Ruth, George Brett, Humphrey Bogart, and more are all around the concourse, so take a few minutes to see them all before the game.
Unlike most teams, the Royals don’t take batting practice in the stadium, making it a bit difficult to get autographs before the game. However, if you want to get a few signatures make your way to Sections 113-118 as a fair amount of players will sign autographs near the dugout before the game. Players will also sometimes sign autographs on their way to the clubhouse after leaving the game. To get autographs from these players, the best place to be is in Sections 121 and 123.
5. Royals Practices
Royals practices open at 9:30 am and are a fantastic experience for any die-hard fan as they offer you the opportunity to get an up-close look at all your favorite players. If you’re attending Royals practice, make sure to park in the main stadium parking lot.
6. Surprise Recreation Campus
Surprise Stadium is located on the Surprise Recreation Campus, which is also home to the community’s regional library, tennis complex, and aquatic center. Stop by and check out any of these recreation services to make the most out of your trip to Surprise, Arizona.
7. Party Pavilion
For $30, you can enjoy watching a game from the Party Pavilion in right-center field. The Party Pavilion features HDTVs and a catered meal, making it one of the best places to take in the game.
8. The Sport Shop
Stop by The Sport Shop in center field or behind home plate to pick up some Royals or Rangers gear. The store behind home plate is a bit bigger. However, you’ll find an excellent selection of team and ballpark merchandise at both locations.
