Yes, my friends, the temperatures finally are climbing back into the 70s and the 80s and the sound of baseballs thunking against mitts and rocketing off of bats is back in the air. Spring training – the Cactus League – has started once again with 15 of the 30 Major League teams calling Arizona home.
Many people rent homes for the month of March to watch games. Some, however, prefer to be the landlord and collect the four-figure checks for renting out their property as a vacation through the peak season of January, February and March.
Today, let’s take a look at what might be possible within a few miles of Maryvale Baseball Park, spring training home of the Milwaukee Brewers. The park itself is one of the Cactus League’s hidden gems. Parking is on site and on asphalt, unlike many places, and there’s not a bad seat to be had in the house. There even are the sausage races that Brewers fans know some well from County Stadium and Miller Park.
Maryvale itself is an older neighborhood, built through the 1960s and 1970s primarily by John F. Long as affordable housing for the baby boomers. In addition to Maryvale itself, however, there are several newer neighborhoods within a few miles of the stadium along 51st Avenue, primarily in the Laveen area south of the Salt River.
Here’s some of what’s available for purchase there right now.
