It may be fall but the Arizona Diamondbacks are already thinking about spring. The D-Backs released their 2013 spring training schedule today featuring a slate of 36 games including 17 home games at Salt River Fields and two exhibition games at Chase Field against the Cincinnati Reds to wrap up the schedule. Arizona will play three games against their training facility partner, the Colorado Rockies. They'll also play two games with National League West Division rivals Los Angeles Dodgers, San Diego Padres and the world champion San Francisco Giants.
Since the World Baseball Classic is also being played in Phoenix, the Diamondbacks will have the unique opportunity to play an exhibition against Team Mexico on March 5 at Salt River Fields. Last season, the team averaged 11,677 in attendance for each home spring training game.
Tickets will go on sale Jan. 5 and range in price from $8 for general admission seating to $18-$27 for reserved seating.
