Travel to Guardians spring training in Goodyear looking to rebound in 2023, after three years disrupted by COVID, lockout

GOODYEAR, Arizona – It’s been four years since Major League Baseball has had a full season of spring training, those five glorious weeks in February and March filled with promise and prospects, foul balls and fan interactions.

“We’ve missed it,” said Pat Koharik of Berea, who is traveling next month to Goodyear, Arizona, to watch the Guardians play in the desert for the first time since 2019.

She and her husband plan to spend three weeks in the Phoenix area, catching five games – and hopefully some errant balls.

“There are picnic tables around the areas where players practice,” said Dick Koharik. “You can eat your lunch and sometimes a ball comes over the fence.”

He added, “It’s such a different vibe. Everything is so laid back.”

Spring training attendance has declined dramatically in recent years, due to the coronavirus pandemic in 2020 and 2021, and uncertainty caused by the Major League Baseball lockout in 2022, which delayed the season by a week.

This year – baseball executives and tourism officials surely hope -- will be different.

“We’re looking forward to having a normal season for 2023,” said Bridget Binsbacher, executive director of the Cactus League, which represents 15 spring-training teams, including the Guardians, in Greater Phoenix. “This is big.”

The Guardians, she said, are likely to enjoy a bit of extra spring-training interest from fans, coming off the team’s surprisingly successful season in 2022.

“What happens in a regular season creates a lot of energy among the fans,” Binsbacher said.

Indeed, in 2017, after the team’s 2016 World Series appearance, the (then) Indians led the Cactus League in attendance jumps, with 6,345 fans per game, an increase of more than 16% from the year before.

Jay Smith, the president of Sports Travel and Tours, is seeing renewed interest in spring-training travel for the first time in years.

At the moment, he said, football is still king. But once the Super Bowl is over, spring and summer baseball will shoot up the priority list, as fans of America’s past-time plot a plan to follow their favorite teams near and far.

Indeed, Smith said his company just finalized a trip for a group of about 40 baseball fans from Medina County, who will be headed to Goodyear in a few weeks.

The only hitch this year, he said: High airfares might force some fans to watch from home.

Interested in heading to Goodyear this spring to catch the Guardians? Here’s what you need to know.

Tickets are on sale now

The Guardians will play 17 games from Feb. 26 through March 26 at Goodyear Ballpark, the facility they’ve shared with the Cincinnati Reds since 2009. Fifteen of those games are home games, including March 15 against the Chicago White Sox, March 18 against the Seattle Mariners, March 21 against the Los Angeles Dodgers and March 8 against Team Mexico.

The Guards also are playing two “away” games in Goodyear, on Feb. 25 and March 17 against the Reds.

The stadium is owned by the city of Goodyear, the fast-growing suburb that is named after the Akron-based tire company, which sent executives to the Arizona desert in the early 1900s in search of land to grow cotton for use in tires.

The ballpark has a seating capacity of 10,311, including $12 general-admission seating on a grassy berm in the outfield and $35 club and field-box seats. Fans can also buy table-of-four seating in the Right Field Pavilion for $76.

The city, located about 20 miles west of downtown Phoenix, initially expected private developers to build up the land around the stadium into a tourist/entertainment zone, with restaurants, bars and other attractions. That largely has not happened, although there are numerous restaurants and hotels just north of the stadium, close to Interstate 10.

In addition to watching the Guardians in Goodyear, fans can travel with the team throughout Greater Phoenix. The Cactus League’s 15 teams play in 10 ballparks, all located within less than an hour’s drive of each other. Away games for the Guardians include a Feb. 27 matchup against the Cubs in Mesa, a March 13 game against the Dodgers in Glendale and a March 15 battle against the Padres in Peoria.

Non-baseball fun

In addition to baseball, there are plenty of other things to do in the area, from hiking and mountain biking to museums and zoos.

Among the numerous options:

* Perusing exquisite pieces of Native American art and artifacts at the renowned Heard Museum in downtown Phoenix, or exploring the history of music and musical instruments at the terrific Musical Instrument Museum in northeast Phoenix.

* Taking a tour of the Desert Botanical Garden or checking out Taliesin West, the winter home and studio of architect Frank Lloyd Wright in Scottsdale.

* Hiking at nearby Estrella Mountain or White Tank Mountain regional parks, or farther east on Camelback Mountain, part of Echo Canyon Recreation Area.

Also nearby: Wildlife World Zoo, Aquarium and Safari Park in Litchfield Park; Phoenix Raceway in Avondale, which hosts two NASCAR events annually; and Glendale’s State Farm Stadium, which is hosting the Super Bowl next month.

You’re also a two-hour drive from the Sedona area, and two hours from Tucson.

Where to stay

There are numerous chain hotels in Goodyear and surrounding suburbs, with availability in late February and March. You won’t find many bargains, however, with rates starting at $200 and up.

For a real treat, consider an overnight at the Wigwam resort, one of the Phoenix area’s top luxury stays. The resort, with 331 rooms, was developed by Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., initially for company executives, but opened to the public in 1929.

Even if you don’t stay here – overnight rates start at about $450 in season – stop by for a drink and a stroll of the lovely grounds.

Another terrific overnight alternative: The Rockin’ M Bar Ranch Bed and Breakfast, where owners Mark and Susan Brutcher offer four well-appointed overnight rooms and a terrific breakfast. The home, at the southern end of Goodyear, is located adjacent to Estrella Mountain Regional Park, with hiking and horseback riding.

Susan Brutcher said the inn is nearly booked solid through spring training for the first time since 2019. Guardians fans make up the biggest percentage of their February and March guests, she said.

The bed and breakfast was forced to close midway through the 2020 spring-training season and remained closed through early 2021. Last year was poised to be a good year, she said, but uncertainty over the lockout caused a rash of last-minute cancellations (though when the labor issues were resolved in late February, “some of the people who canceled wound up rebooking.”)

This year, she said, is looking up. “We’re going to be working every day.”

Nationwide Realty Investors has opened a new hotel at its $1 billion Cavasson development in north Scottsdale.

The Hilton at Cavasson opened earlier this month at the northwest corner of Loop 101 and Hayden Road. The property is owned by Nationwide Realty Investors and managed by Columbus Hospitality Management.

The 6-story, full-service Hilton at Cavasson features 237 guest rooms, a coffee shop, fitness center, resort-style swimming pool and a 15,000 square-foot event center. There is also a top floor event space and terrace and a restaurant and bar called the Desert Pony Tavern.

Franchisee United Fitness Partners is getting ready to open the Valley’s 44th and 45th Planet Fitness gym.

United FP opened a 17,500-square-foot club at 409 N. Litchfield Road in Goodyear. In the coming weeks, it will open a Gilbert location at 706 N. McQueen Road. The gyms will include cardio and strength equipment, locker rooms, massage chairs and more.

“We are dedicated to bringing the most convenient and state-of-the-art fitness center to the greater Phoenix area with the amazing support from the community here,” said Emily Torpey, regional director of United FP, in a statement.

With the two new gyms, United FP will operate 42 clubs across the Valley. In November, Planet Fitness opened the 43rd location, which was a 17,500-square-foot gym at 1919 N. Power Road in Mesa.

In other retail/restaurant news, fast-casual brandNoodles & Company is set to open its first location in Scottsdale on Jan. 25. The chain, which serves globally-inspired noodle dishes made fresh to order, is opening at 4902 East Shea Blvd., Suite 106.

The chain has five other locations in the Valley.

First International Bank & Trust inked a long-term lease at Anchor Centre East in Phoenix’s Camelback Corridor.

Goodyear-based Phoenix West Commercial Vice President and Principal ELi Mastracci represented the North Dakota-based bank’s renewal at the building.

The lease is for the first floor and represents a nearly 8,000-square-foot footprint. The bank has space on the third floor of the building as well at 2231 E. Camelback Road.

“This year, our branch at Anchor Centre East had quite the challenge ahead of us — the renewal of our first-floor space amid a tight suburban office submarket, record-high rental rates, and many moving parts,” said Michael Bosh, director of real estate and construction for First International Bank & Trust, in a statement.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Chris Walker represented the landlord, Florida-based Anchor Manager Inc.

“This was a very complex transaction due to the nature of two leases in separate spaces, all in the same project, that coincide with each other,” Mastracci said in a statement.

The office complex features a common conference room, fitness room and Gladly restaurant on the first floor.

Minneapolis-based The Opus Grouprecently started construction on the Confluence Industrial Park in Casa Grande, the company announced this week.

The two-building speculative industrial facility will be located at 1371 Sunland Gin Road on about 21 acres. It will also be developed nearby Interstate 10 and Interstate 8 and other large manufacturing sites including Procter & Gamble's new fabric care plant and Kohler Co.'s plumbing ware plant.

The first building will be 152,200 square feet with 39 dock doors and a 32-foot clear height, while the second will total 173,035 square feet with 42 dock doors and 32-foot clear height. It will also include 240 auto parking stalls, skylights for natural lighting and LED lights.

The project is expected to be completed by December of 2023. It's also located along Union Pacific rail line.

JLL is the brokerage representing Opus on the project for leasing. More industrial developers have started making plans for speculative buildings to support the growth of manufacturers and suppliers in Pinal County.

Phoenix-based Arizona Land Consulting recently closed on a 120-acre parcel for $5.8 million in Tonopah.

The site returned 280% of the original investment since it was first purchased in 2019. It sold for $13,000 per acre three years ago and recently sold for $45,000 per acre, according to Arizona Land Consulting.

The site is an Opportunity Zone near Interstate 10 and 339th Avenue and has zoning and infrastructure in place for development. The buyer of the property plans to build an industrial development on the site.

Arizona Land Consulting also sold a 3,000-square-foot easement, located off the I-10 freeway and Yuma Road, to a digital billboard company for $1.05 million in late November. This represented nearly a 15,000% increase on the original investment. The original purchase price was $7,000.

“This is a great example of how investors can maximize their land use and create passive income, no matter the current economic situation. Although the economy may be suffering in other industries, commercial real estate has continued to deliver a really high return for our investors,” said Anita Verma-Lallian, CEO and founder of Arizona Land Consulting in a statement. “Industrial land continues to be a very hot market.”

Outside of the Valley,an energy-efficient earth-sheltered home designed by Formworks has been listed for $879,900 in Prescott.

Built on nearly one acre, the 2,618-square-foot home at 858 E. Fawn Hill Rd is listed by Penny Waid, an agent affiliated with the Prescott office of Coldwell Banker Realty.

The property, which is two miles from historic downtown Prescott, borders state trust land, offering unobstructed mountain views.

The elevational bermed earth-sheltered design blends the building into the landscape, providing extra protection against noise, extreme weather, fire and other natural disasters. The energy efficient technology naturally uses solar and geothermal properties for heating and cooling, lowering the cost by 50% to 90%.

CLEVELAND, Ohio – A year ago, Cleveland snowbirds who were looking to fly nonstop to the Arizona desert had four airlines from which to choose.

Today, two carriers – United and American – have exited the market, leaving Frontier and Southwest as the sole nonstop options for Clevelanders headed to spring training and other Phoenix-area attractions.

Total seat capacity from Cleveland Hopkins to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport has dropped by more than half in the past year, according to statistics from Cleveland Hopkins.

Spokespeople for both United and American said demand did not meet expectations on the routes.

“As part of the continuous evaluation of our network, American made the difficult decision to not restart seasonal service between Cleveland and Phoenix as the service wasn’t meeting performance expectations,” said a spokesperson for American.

Christine Salamone, media relations manager with United, offered this explanation: “United regularly adjusts its schedule for a number of reasons including demand, the broader needs of our network and more. We continue to operate nonstops from CLE to all seven of our hubs plus Cancun and Nassau internationally and Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers and Orlando domestically.”

The cuts from American and United leave low-cost carrier Frontier with the large majority of nonstop flights to Phoenix. The carrier currently flies once per day to Phoenix from Cleveland, with departures at 8:45 a.m..

Southwest Airlines, meanwhile, has increased service between Cleveland and Phoenix from once per week to twice per week, with nonstop service on Saturdays and Sundays.

Brett Snyder, who follows the airline industry on CrankyFlier.com, said airlines continue to face equipment and employee shortages and are constantly assessing where they can make the most money with their limited resources.

The question isn’t whether airlines are making money on any given route – “it’s could they be making more money elsewhere?” he said. “They have a lot of demand – they have to be careful how they ration their airplanes.”

According to the Bureau of Transportation Services, the load factor – that’s the percentage of seats that are occupied -- on the Cleveland-to-Phoenix flights in the first quarter of 2022 was 76.2%.

Southwest had the highest load factor on the route, with 91% of seats full; Frontier had the lowest, at 69%. United was 81% and American was 79%.
