Travel to Goodyear, AZ to photograph the Cleveland Indians

The Cleveland Indians are gearing up for the 2010 season at their Goodyear, AZ training camp. Travel photographers can get some nice close-up photographs before the season even begins.

Games are played at Goodyear Ballpark in Goodyear, Arizona. It’s located at 1933 S Ballpark Way. Goodyear is located about 30 minutes due west of the Phoenix Airport via I-10. Click here for a Google map showing the stadium’s location.

Photographing spring training games gets you closer to the action in smaller venues. This enables you to fill the frame with all the action and less of the field.

Typically all spring training locations are in warm and sunshiny states making for better photo conditions than Cleveland in the spring. Photo suggestion…pack your UV filter, a polarizer if you have one and that sun shade that came with your lense. Don’t forget sunscreen and a hat for yourself.

You can get the Indians schedule on their special spring training Web page. Prices for tickets will save you considerably as well. Infield box seats can be had for $23.00 or get premium field boxes for $27.00. Lawn seats go for only $5.00 or $8.00; but bring your telephoto lense as you are far out in left and center field.

Parking is plentiful and you can arrive 90 minutes before game time to get some close-up shots during warm-ups. Autographs are available as well, before and after the games.

See some of this year’s action at the spring training camp through the lense of Mark Duncan, Cleveland area AP photographer in the slide show at the bottom of my article on

In addition to the baseball, Arizona offers all sorts of other photo opportunities nearby. Think hot air balloons, parachuting, helicopter tours, river runs, Hummer adventures, and lots of golf. Contact names, addresses and phone numbers are also available at the Indians Spring Training local attractions Web page.
