Little Red Schoolhouse Museum offers historic look at Scottsdale spring training

No community has a richer, more diverse spring training history than Scottsdale.

A free exhibit at Scottsdale’s Little Red Schoolhouse Museum takes visitors this season on a whimsical and thought-provoking journey through more than six decades of Scottsdale Stadium and the spring training teams that have called it home.

Rare artifacts, memorabilia and vignettes will transport fans back to the launch of Scottsdale spring training when a rookie (and future Hall of Famer) named Brooks Robinson was trying to earn a job with the Baltimore Orioles.

In total, five Major League franchises have trained in Scottsdale, featuring some of the most memorable teams, players and characters to ever grace the game.

You’ll enjoy memorabilia, period uniforms, photos and stories from each of those eras in the museum exhibit, which is produced by the nonprofit group Arizona Baseball Legacy and Experience and the Scottsdale Historical Society.

The free exhibit opens Feb. 7 and runs through April. The museum is located at 7333 E. Scottsdale Mall, just east of the intersection of Brown Avenue and Main Street in Old Town Scottsdale.

The museum’s hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. on Sundays.

To arrange a behind the scenes tour and interviews, contact Mike Phillips at 480-220-4008.
