EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. Minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Get into the swing of things with the Seattle Mariners and Oakland Athletics as they prepare for the 2015 season in the intimate and casual atmosphere of Arizona’s Cactus League. Which of these Western teams is ready to win the pennant? Study baseball in-depth with members of the Society for American Baseball Research, learning about the game’s history and the great players from each organization. Take in at least two games with your team and four total, experiencing a variety of ballparks along the way.


• Enjoy a sing-along with the organist for the Arizona Diamondbacks and discuss the current state of the game with a member of the Society for American Baseball Research.
• Enjoy stories from a former player or baseball historian and hear from a sportswriter about how he conveys the rhythm of the game.
• Go behind the scenes of one of the most innovative ballparks in the majors: Chase Field, regular-season home of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Program Notes

Lunch during day games or dinner during night games on your own at the ballparks. Enjoy at least two games with your team, four total. While we request seats in the shade, we may occasionally be in the sun. For best group seating, register by December 15.

Activity Notes

Walk one-half mile; stairs at ballparks. Games attended are dependent on Cactus League schedule, which is finalized in December.

Coordinated by Northern Arizona University.
