  1. I am a hardcore Dodger fan from Vero Beach, Florida. My wife and I will be in Glendale during the period April 19 thru 23 and we would like to attend some of the Dodger’s minor league team practice games. Would we be able to watch these games and practice sessions much as we did in Vero.

  2. Jack,

    Yes you should be able to see those games. Most of the minor league games are played on the two back fields, but don’t start until March 14 I believe. The first major league exhibition games start on March 3.

    Most of the practicing is done within view of the general public.
