Spring Training Stadium Tour: Surprise Stadium

The Dodgers today traveled north and a bit west to Surprise Stadium to face the Texas Rangers in their second game away from Camelback Ranch so far this spring. Of the 10 Cactus League stadiums, Surprise is the most northwest of them all, roughly 14 miles from Dodgers camp.

Surprise Stadium has been the home of both the Rangers and Kansas City Royals since 2003. It is located in the Surprise Recreation Campus, across the street from the community center and aquatic center. Tickets range from $7 to $25.

Down the right field line, there was even a merry-go-round. Kind of makes you want a chicken sandwich followed by spinning around, right?

There is also the Double Play Diner on the right field side as well, another dining option.
