Tips and Tricks

When visiting the stadiums for Cactus League games, remember that they are cashless, so have your debit card or digital wallet ready for transactions. Some stadiums offer reverse ATMs to convert cash to plastic, but verify beforehand. Be mindful of bag policies, as most stadiums limit sizes and content; sealed bottled water and snacks in plastic bags are generally allowed. Prepare for security screenings upon entrance, and don’t forget sunscreen – it’s available for purchase at team shops if needed. Keep an eye on your ballpark’s website for updates on promotions or events throughout the season.
