HoHoKam Stadium

1235 N. Center St. Mesa, AZ 85201 | Mesa | 480-644-4451

Location Description:

Since 1997, the folks running Hohokam Stadium have kept the price of the lawn seats at five bucks. Five bucks to watch the Cubbies, for God's sake! Five bucks to watch the ebullient Cubs fans before the Cubs have been able to begin losing any real games, when Cubs fans are still happy-go-lucky drunks rather than the sour drunks, like Mike Royko back in the 1960s. And while cities throughout the Valley scramble to make these spring training fields look like the best of the major league fields, the only thing that matters are the fans. Hohokam has Cubs fans in spring.The only downside of Hohokam, though, is quite serious. Old Style is served there, but it is served in plastic cups; At Wrigley Field, the Old Style comes in wax cups, something longtime aficionados of "Dog Style," as we called it in college, say makes the beer the best in the world.
