Arizona is HOT. What can be done about the heat?
While we can’t control the sun, there are a few things that BFA & Legacy Sports Complex are doing to help keep your players as cool as possible:
- Artificial turf cooling system
- Avoiding game times during hours of peak temperatures (12PM – 5PM)
- Covered bleachers & dugouts
- Air-conditioned spaces throughout the park, including the food court, arcade, and more
- Portable misting bottles provided for each team by BFA
Players are welcome to wear cooling vests and the like, if desired.
Anything I can do to be prepared for the heat?
YES. See below for tips and best practices from Arizona locals:
- Start hydrating a few days BEFORE you arrive to Arizona
Drink at least 64 oz. of water every day
Eat snacks that have sodium and salt. This will help retain water.
Eat whole fruits and vegetables. The best ones are cucumbers, celery, tomatoes, peppers, cauliflower, watermelon and grapefruit. (They all contain a high percentage of water and will help you stay hydrated.)
Keep cooling towels in the dugout to stay cool during games
Are the special events open to the public?
All special events offered at BFA Nationals are exclusively for our players and coaches, unless otherwise specified. Please see our Special Events page for more details.
Will baseballs be provided in the batting cages?
Yes! Legacy Sports Complex will be providing baseballs for the batting cages for teams to use. Teams must bring their own baseballs for pre-game warmups or any non-cage-related work.
The batting cages at Fitch Park will not be available for teams to use.
Why is Fitch Park special?
Located in Mesa, AZ, Fitch Park is the Spring Training workout facility for the Oakland Athletics. All 16U teams will have an opportunity to play on one of these MLB-level fields during BFA Nationals this year.
