1. Autographs

To get as many autographs from A’s players as possible, position yourself behind the tarp before the game. Many players will sign autographs here up until 20 minutes before the game making it a great place to get signatures. If you want to get the autograph of a visiting player, make sure to be on the outer edge of the visiting dugout. After the game, you’ll also have a couple of good options for where to get autographs. You can catch the A’s on the concourse as they make their way out of the clubhouse near the first base grandstand, while the best place to secure a signature from a visiting player is as they board the bus in right field.

2. Concourse Murals

Around the concourse, you’ll find pictures of all the biggest moments in A’s history. They’re all must-sees for any fan who want to relive their favorite moments, so take a walk around the concourse to see them all.

3. Stomper's Kid Zone

Located in center field, Stomper’s Kid Zone is the perfect place to take restless kids during the game. Stomper’s Kid Zone features inflatables and baseball-themed activities making it a fun area for kids of all ages.

4 Tailgating

Before an A’s spring training game, you’ll also want to enjoy some tailgating. Tailgating is allowed in the parking lots at Hohokam Stadium, so bring the gas grill, cooler, tent, and chairs for a fun morning of tailgating before the game. You’ll make lots of friends when tailgating as there are tons of diehard A’s fans scattered throughout the parking lot.

5. Cactus League’s Largest Scoreboard

6. A's Practices

The Oakland A’s spring training practices are held at the practice field behind the centerfield wall as well as the Lew Wolff Training Complex, which is located at 160 E. 6th Place. Before Cactus League play starts, you can see the A’s and their minor leaguers train at the Lew Wolff Training Complex starting at 8 am. Once the games begin, the A’s big league players practice before the game in the field and batting cages behind center field before the game.

7. A's Team Store

Pick up a souvenir from your trip to Mesa, Arizona at the A’s Team Store on the third base side. The store offers a wide selection of A’s merchandise as well as spring training merchandise, so you won’t have to worry about leaving empty-handed.

9. New Paint Job

Before the A’s arrival in 2015, Hohokam Stadium underwent a renovation to make the ballpark feel like the home of the A’s. As a result of the remodel, the exterior now features a green and yellow color scheme as well as A’s related pictures.

10. Right Field Lounge
