As you'd expect, the season starts off with a couple of games against our stadium partners, the Colorado Rockies at Salt River Fields. We then head off to Surprise, for the first of three games against the Kansas City Royals - though unfortunately, the only time we face them at SRF is a Wednesday afternoon, so it doesn't look like there will be a Frenchiefest 2013. :( We face the World Series champion Giants in Scottsdale on March 3rd, then at Salt River on the 27th. I'm also not sure about the game against the Mariners on the 12th. Where is "Temps"? I'm thinking that should probably be Peoria, their normal home park.

The most likely dates for the main SnakePitSpringTrainingFestapalooza of 2013 - weekend games at SRF - are Saturdays March 2 (Rangers) + 9 (White Sox), or Sundays 17 (Dodgers) + 24 (Mariners). Leaning towards the last, as being the one where we'll see most players we know playing for most innings, but open to discussion over the next, oh, three months or so! Individual game tickets go on sale January 5, with season-ticket plans available from December 20th.
