Tailgating and Brewers baseball go hand in hand, so you’ll want to arrive at the ballpark early when attending spring training. Brewers fans love to tailgate, and there is no better way to make new friends and spring training than by taking part in the fun. Crack open a few beers or twelve and enjoy a full morning of tailgating with fellow die-hard Brewers fans before entering the ballpark to watch the Crew get ready for the season.
Die-hard fans will also want to get to Maryvale Baseball Park early to catch the team practice before the game. Whether you’re attending batting practice or coming before Cactus League play begins, you’ll have a ton of fun getting up-close to your favorite Brewers. You also won’t want to miss the opportunity to see how the Brewers top prospects are coming along either, making Brewers practices a major draw for you Brew Crew lovers.
Tailgating is huge when it comes to the Brewers, so don’t miss your opportunity to take part in the fun when attending spring training in Maryvale.
The Brewers practice facility is located behind Maryvale Baseball Park and opens around 7:00 am. However, you won’t find much going on until about 9:00 am. The facility contains five minor league fields numbered 4 through 8, which are used by the major league club until the Cactus League starts. Once Cactus League play begins, the big league club spends the majority of their time at the stadium and practice field number 2. Practice field number 2 isn’t open to fans, but you can grab some balls from batting practice by standing behind the right-field fence.Watch video
