Arizona has a long history of hosting major league spring training camps. Once home to eight teams, a recent building boom of new ballparks has led to half of the 30 major league teams training there. Many now share recently constructed, state-of-the-art facilities.

With another round of Cactus League exhibition games opening this weekend, here’s a look at the teams that make their camps in Arizona, starting west and making the way east (Earlier this week, we profiled the 15 teams that train in Florida).
