Picture of a BaseballTrivia Question

Which Major League baseball team has its Spring Training home located in closest proximity to its regular-season home stadium?

Trivia Question Answer

The Arizona Diamond backs hold spring training at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick which is only 18.8 miles from their home field – Chase Stadium. Fun fact about the Salt River Fields at Talking Stick is that it was the stadium to be built on Indian land. Second closest are the Tampa Bay Rays who hold spring training at the Charlotte Sports Park only 79.4 miles from Tropicana Field where they play their regular season home games (according to Google Maps). This is only 3.2 miles better than the Florida Marlins who hold spring training in Roger Dean Stadium 82.6 miles away from their home field Marlins Park.
