PHOENIX — It's official: Spring Training is on!

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all of the stadiums in the Arizona Cactus League will operate at significantly reduced capacities, allowing a reduced number of fans to attend each game.

Unsurprisingly, the experience will be a bit different due to the pandemic -- tickets will be sold in groups of two, four, and six; masks are required to be worn throughout the stadiums except when actively eating or drinking; no bags will be allowed inside the stadiums aside from small clutches, wallets, diaper bags and medical bags; and pre-game practices and autographs are closed to the public.

And, at some stadiums, no sunflower seeds to avoid spitting.

Here is what we know about each stadium's plans and how to get tickets.
