Welcome to the voting for the Best of the Ballparks, Cactus League edition for spring training 2023!
Here are the seeds for the top ballparks in Arizona spring training. We based these rankings both on the ballparks and the accompanying training facilities. This was a hard bracket to seed: there’s not a whole lot of difference between the top and the bottom of the list. There are lots of intangibles as well—tradition vs. shiny and new, workout facilities the public doesn’t see, neighborhood amenities vs. lots of parking—but we think we’ve taken all these intangibles into account. In any case, we’re eager to see how our fans vote.
Here are the seeds for the ballparks in Arizona's spring training. We based these rankings both on the ballparks and the accompanying training facilities. Salt River Fields at Talking Stick received the most votes in 2021, so the spring home of the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies automatically received the top seed.
Honestly, there's not a big gap between the top and the bottom of this seeding: With renovations and improvements, the state of fan and player facilities in the Cactus League is very, very strong.
Here is our voting schedule:
First round: Completed
Second round: Completed
Third Round: Completed
Final Round: Now through March 18, midnight Central
