From Ken Gurnick:
opens March 4 with a home game against the White Sox at their shared facility at Camelback Ranch-Glendale.
The schedule of 30 games concludes with a Freeway Series against the Angels on April 2-4 — the games on Thursday and Friday night in Anaheim, the Saturday game at Dodger Stadium — with all game times to be announced.
The club has at least one home game during each of the four Cactus League weekends. There will be four scheduled split-squad doubleheaders.
The Dodgers will play the World Series champion San Francisco Giants on March 9 at Scottsdale and March 27 at Camelback Ranch.

11/12/15 Update: The Dodgers will play two games in San Antonio, the home of their Double-A team from 1977 -2000. I always wanted to visit San Antonio. I hear it is a beautiful city. The Dodgers will take a split squat team March 20-21 to play the Texas Rangers. The two games will be played at the Alamodome in downtown San Antonio. Tickets go on sale Friday here http://www.bigleagueweekend.com/buy-tickets.html
Meanwhile back at the Ranch…..Lore and I made it from the L.A. area to Glendale, AZ in 5 hours. The first thing we saw when we were approaching Camelback Ranch was a digital sign from CVS drugstore that read “Welcome Dodgers fans to the Cactus League”. We both pointed to the sign excitedly. We got more excited when we saw that to our right we could see a field with a whole bunch of White Sox players exercising! Ooooh we could hardly wait to park the car!
As we approached the gate, we were told that there was mockup game that day. (The team was in Tucson playing the Rockies.) We parked and started toward the gate but noticed that we needed tickets. I went to the ticket window but I was told that it was only for family and friends. I thanked the lady and we were about to walk away when this very nice guy gave us two tickets! We thanked him profusely and we went inside and took in all of the sites from the inside. The grass looked so green and the whole place looked magnificent. They were practicing all the festivities for the pregame. We sat where the ticket said we could sit which was behind home plate after getting our free food. We both tried the Chicago dogs. I never had one before and I really liked it. They gave us the first item free plus a drink and any additional items were a dollar. Beer was regular price.
After enjoying our lunch and realizing that there was not going to an actual mock game but only a few ladies throwing on the field, we walked through the whole stadium taking in the beautiful view, talking to ushers and taking pictures. We noticed two workers with drills still working on some seats. We were all decked out in Dodger blue! One of the ushers told us “I think I saw Vin Scully upstairs” so up we went to check out the suites and see if we could see our beloved Vin but he was no longer there. The only one I saw was Josh Rawich (Dodgers VP of Communication) who was walking by with some people heading to get some food. I yelled “JOSH”. He looked around who was calling him. I yelled “UP HERE.” He said “Hi Emma, you guys are everywhere”. lol. The next day I read Josh post at ITD (Insidethedodgers.mlblogs) saying that he had given Vin a tour of the place so we had just missed him.
We left to check in at the Springhill suites hotel . Later on our friend Erik called us that he had arrived in Glendale and if we could pick him up so afterwards, the three of us headed to find a place for dinner. We were close to this shopping center that had several restaurants. We ask what the wait was at the Yard House and they said between 45 minutes to 1 hour. Ran into 2 Dodgers photographers there and Jon told me the wait was going to be like that everywhere.. We went to a place called Joe’s Grill for drinks and food. Later on we headed to Scottsdale blasting the CD playing “I Love L.A” and singing along to get ready for the season. By the time we came back it was 3:30 in the morning. It did not help that we got lost on our way back and that the gas station where we got off was not open.
To be continue with the Grand Opening day!
