FORT COLLINS, CO – With the sporting world continuing its rebound to a more normal schedule, Triple Crown Sports is eagerly anticipating the launch of its iconic early-season youth baseball event, the 2022 Arizona Spring Championships.
With the popularity of the tournament on the rise, there will be five sessions of 8u through 14u action taking flight throughout metropolitan Phoenix as 19 of the 31 days of March will feature TCS teams on the diamond. Sessions are slated for:
With the schedule now released, here are the important numbers to consider on the Arizona Spring Championships:
“Here in Scottsdale, March is synonymous with baseball, and we are thrilled to once again host Triple Crown Sports’ Arizona Spring Championships,” said Rachel Sacco, President and CEO of Experience Scottsdale. “During the tournament, teams will play our top-notch fields while crowds will soak up our beautiful, warm sunshine.
“Off the diamond, players and their families will explore all the city has to offer – outdoor adventure opportunities, unique family-friendly attractions, world-class restaurants and more. Experience Scottsdale and our entire hospitality community look forward to welcoming competitors throughout the month.”
The 2022 event lands at an important time for area businesses with the current delay and lingering unknowns about MLB Spring Training. Triple Crown schedules its teams during the Arizona event so everyone can catch spring training games, but even with the uncertainly surrounding MLB’s intensions, 2022 marks a record year for registrations for the Arizona Spring Championships.
“I personally want to thank the 530 teams for making Triple Crown Sports and Phoenix, Arizona a part of their 2022 schedule,” said TCS event director Matt Pilcher. “I also want to thank my great facility partners and the lodging community for welcoming us in March. It’s going to be a lot of fun for the kids.”
