In 31 games thus far, the Dodgers went 16-9-6 this spring, with 14 of those games being home games at Camelback.
The team has also already exceeded three million tickets sold for the regular season. This is the earliest in franchise history that they have reached that milestone. Season ticket packages were capped at 35,000.
Since moving to Los Angeles in 1958, the Dodgers have led the Majors in attendance 26 times, including 2014.
Camelback Ranch opened in 2009, after the Dodgers left their longtime Spring Training home in Vero Beach, Florida. That is proving to be a good decision, as it appears more and more fans are making the eight hour drive to Arizona, as opposed to a long flight to Florida, to watch the Dodgers’ Spring Training games.
