More baseball: Exhibits and more adorn Cactus League Legacy Trail

Great teams, exceptional players and unforgettable memories – Scottsdale’s rich history of baseball comes to life in a free exhibit launching Jan. 18 at the Civic Center Library, 3839 N. Scottsdale Road.

Five Major League teams have trained in Scottsdale, as have dozens of Hall of Fame players. Celebrate their stories at an exhibit that’s just a short stroll from Scottsdale Stadium.

This year’s exhibit, presented by the Arizona Spring Training Experiencelinks to external site, also features the 2017 inductees into the Cactus League Hall of Fame.

The Scottsdale Historical Museumlinks to external site is also hosting a Cactus League exhibit this spring. The museum, located at 7333 E. Scottsdale Mall, features free admission and is also a short walk from Scottsdale Stadium.

Both exhibits are part of the Cactus League Legacy Trail, a self-guided tour that provides fans with an intimate look at the history, hangouts and characters that make spring training one of the most cherished traditions of American baseball.
