Scaled-down ballparks are part of spring training's charm

Major League Baseball spring training games are opportunities for fans – many of them retirees and vacationers – to bask in the sun while getting a sneak preview of which players and teams to watch once the regular season opens April 1. The atmosphere is laid-back and the ballparks are invitingly intimate (in Florida for Grapefruit League action, and in Arizona for Cactus League play). Often they're not even one-quarter the size of major league stadiums. The largest spring training venues, with their locations, big-league team affiliations, and seating capacities:

Peoria Sports Complex Peoria, Ariz. (Mariners and Padres) 12,882
HoHoKam Stadium Mesa, Ariz. (Cubs) 12,623
Tucson Electric Park Tucson, Ariz. (White Sox and Diamondbacks) 11,500
Surprise Stadium Surprise, Ariz. (Rangers and Royals) 10,500
Scottsdale Stadium Scottsdale, Ariz. (Giants) 10,500
Legends Field Tampa, Fla. (Yankees) 10,200
