Spring training is almost here and Oakland A starts its Cactus League schedule with games on February 28th. Unlike last year’s regular season at the Colosseum, fans will be able to buy tickets to these exhibitions in Arizona.
With the approval of MLB and the local county, A’s will “welcome a limited number of fans to Hohokam Stadium during the spring training season 2021”, according to their press release on Friday. Tickets go on sale from the morning of 18 February at athletics.com, with some free tips for vaccinated healthcare professionals in the Phoenix area.
This will mark the first time that fans have been allowed to participate in A’s games since March last year, before the coronavirus pandemic was shut down. From the team release:
A limited capacity plan that will follow the social distance guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and approved by local health officials. To maximize safety, tickets will be sold in physically spaced “pods” with two or four contiguous seats.
The real schedule for games for Cactus League has been out for a while, but in a new announcement on Friday, a couple of dates were adjusted and split troops were removed. The A’s were originally scheduled to start on February 27, but now they will start a day later against the Dodgers instead of the Brewers.
The start times for the games were not officially announced until today. They are exactly what you think, 13:05 or 13:10 pretty much every day, with the proviso that the clocks change on March 14 so everything before that day will happen at noon PT here in the Bay Area. March 13 against the Reds is a night game at 6:05 pm (or 5:05 pm in Oakland), and March 26 against the Dodgers will be at 6:05 pm whether you are in AZ or CA.
A big difference comes at the end of spring. The annual Bay Bridge series between the A and Giants will be held in Arizona instead of at the Coliseum and Oracle Park, notes Shayna Rubin of Mercury News. The rivals also only play two show games instead of the usual three, on March 28 (13.05) and March 29 (12: 05).
