A few observations from spring training trip.
SOX rumored to be moving to Phoenix area and taking over Angels facility. JR and Gov. of Az met last week. Very nice park and facility, better than Tuscon.
HO HO Kam worst facility we saw by far. Parking terrilble, store had lines to get in because it is only place to buy stuff in the place. Concessions highest in area - saw 5 parks. My one friend who is a die hard cub fan says even he would rather watch them at the other parks.
Best park - Giants, all goods seats, lots of concessions and fan friendly place all around. Reasonably priced on food and souveniers.Worker there saw my SOX shirt and 1st comment was thank God someone from Chicago not an annoying cub fan.
If you are college age stay in Tempe, you will never regret it.
Older - Scottsdale lot of nightlife and baseball.
Crede, Gload, Valentine all hustling alot, Harris, PK need work.

If the Sox go back to Florida, then I'd go to spring training. I know that won't happen as long as JR owns the team.
