Colorado kicks off Cactus League action vs. Arizona on Feb. 28
DENVER -- The Rockies will open their 2014 Spring Training schedule against the D-backs on Feb. 28 at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick in Scottsdale, Ariz.
Fans planning a spring trip might want to go from March 19-24, when games are scheduled on six consecutive days -- against the Cubs on March 19, the Brewers on March 20, the Indians on March 21, the Mariners on March 22 (split squad), the White Sox on March 23 and the Royals on March 24.
Including the March 22 contest, this year's Cactus League schedule features five split-squad dates. Two are night games at Salt River Fields -- March 3 against the D-backs and March 14 against the Mariners.
Weekends also are a good time to see the Rockies at Salt River Fields, as they will be playing there on Friday and Saturday for four straight weeks starting March 7-8.
In all, the Rockies are scheduled for 33 Cactus League games, 18 at Salt River Fields.
The Rockies and D-backs share Salt River Fields but will meet just three times before the D-backs open the regular season against the Dodgers in Sydney from March 22-23.
The Spring Training schedule ends with a set against the Mariners on March 28, a night game at Peoria, Ariz., and a day game on March 29 at Salt River Fields. The Rockies' regular season opens against the Marlins in Miami on March 31.
