Diamondbacks announce 2020 spring training schedule, will play GCU
The Arizona Diamondbacks announced Monday their slate of games for the 2020 spring training Cactus League, a schedule that will include a game against Grand Canyon University.
In keeping with the Diamondbacks’ recent trend of playing the local colleges during spring training, Arizona will face GCU on March 17 at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick. That will be a night game.
Arizona’s 23rd spring training slate will open on Saturday, Feb. 22, against the Colorado Rockies. The D-backs will be the away team in that game, though of course the two franchises share their spring training facility. That game is at Salt River Fields.
The following day, Feb. 23, marks the D-backs’ first official home game of next year’s Cactus League. They’ll face the Oakland A’s.
Salt River Fields will also host the MLB4 tournament from Feb. 14 to 16, an event that features college teams including Vanderbilt, Michigan, UConn and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.
Single-game tickets for Salt River Fields will go on sale Jan. 11.
