The Surprise Recreation Campus exudes a wow factor, as everything was done first class. Built in the west valley to house the Kansas City Royals and Texas Rangers, the stadium has a beatifully unique facade and upper deck level that puts fans seemingly on top of the field. The electronic ribbon video boards along the deck are exceptionally fan-friendly, as is the spacious concourse. The campus also includes an aquatic center, tennis complex, community park and a library, perfect for a complete day of activities.

Facility Facts


Most Unique Concessions Item: Deliciousness evolves from the variety offered such as roasted corn with a bevy of seasonings, puffy tacos, Chuckie's fried pork tenderloin sandwich, crispy fries (both wavy and curly), fresh elephant ears and a cool shaved iced "Snowie" offering over 30 flavors.
Best Known Ballpark Amenity: Fans might catch a glimpse of batting practice along the Sanderson Ford Concourse's batting cages. From tee-work to casual baseball talk, this special amenity brings the game that much closer to fans.
Most Distinguishable Stadium Feature: The love for the game is prevalent with quotes from Babe Ruth, George Will, Bob Lemon, Bryant Gumbel, Red Smith and Humphrey Bogart. The lower deck concourse also features plaques commemorating the Rangers' and Royals' greatest players and managers as well as local community heroes.
Best Ballpark Game Tradition: To honor those who have served, Surprise honors a different military branch before each Sunday game. Branch members perform a flag raising cand color guard ceremony before the national anthem.
Most Interesting Stadium Tidbit: The playing field in the stadium is named after the city's first Parks and Recreation Director, Billy Parker. Parker played 3 years in the big leagues and hit a game-winning home run in his first big league game. Billy's love of youth sports can still be seen today in the City of Surprise's youth program offerings.

Stadium Scoop


Autographs: The best spot for fans to add to their autograph collection is to come early and catch the players on the back practice fields during morning workouts. Practice fields open to the public each morning at 9:30 am.
Parking: Parking at the Surprise Recreation Campus is always free. Make sure to arrive early for the best spots.
Concessions: Make sure to try a local craft beer at the ballpark from Surprise's own State 48 Brewery.
Tickets: Tickets can be purchased online at Tickets.com, over the phone at 623.222.2222 or in person at the stadium. The ticket office opens each day at 8 am and will remain open 30 minutes past the conclusion of that day's game.
Gates: Stadium gates open 90 minutes before first pitch.

Team Travels


The Kansas City Royals moved their spring training base to Arizona in 2003 and it was the first time the Royals had not trained in Florida in franchise history. The club spent many years at the aptly-named Baseball City in the Grapefruit League before moving to Surprise in 2003 along with the Texas Rangers.

Philanthropic Partner


The Surprise Sundancers are the official spring training volunteer organization of the Kansas City Royals, Texas Rangers and the City of Surprise. The Sundancers are comprised of over 750 members and support greater Surprise/Northwest Valley youth-related programs and projects.
