Mariners Add Spring Training Game in Tucson

The Mariners have added a spring training game, returning to the old Cactus League stomping grounds of Tucson to play the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday, March 16 at 1:05 p.m. at Kino Stadium (formerly known as Tucson Electric Park). You can visit Mariners.com for the complete Spring Training schedule.

The Mariners will play the Brewers March 16 at Tucson's Kino Stadium.

The game will be a split-squad contest, as the Mariners also play the A’s that evening at 7:05 p.m. at Phoenix Municipal Stadium.

The Mariners used to make the trip South on I-10 to Tucson at least once each spring from 1977-2010 when the Cleveland Indians (until 1992 at Hi Corbett Field), Colorado Rockies (1993-2010 at Hi Corbett Field), Chicago White Sox (1998-2008 at Tucson Electric Park) and Arizona Diamondbacks (1998-2010) all trained in The Old Pueblo.
