Tucson Invitational Games

March 13, 2023

It’s well known among baseball fans that our sunny state plays host to several major league spring training camps. In fact, this year, we’re even hosting the World Baseball Classic, with teams competing from around the globe. But you might not be aware Tucson is the home of collegiate spring training, and all during the month of March, you can watch the best up-and-coming athletes play in the Tucson Invitational Games (TIG).

TIG only hosted collegiate softball until 2010 when baseball was added, and since then, the success of both events has attracted more than 600 colleges and universities to Southern Arizona as a fun and challenging way to prepare for the upcoming season. In 2016, TIG bridged the gap between collegiate coaches and local youth by hosting youth club softball events that exposed the aspiring youngsters to their future potential. Now TIG hosts more than 15 youth tournaments a year. 

Want to watch the college stars? Come to this year’s Cactus Classic at the Kino Sports Complex just a short half-hour drive from Westward Look. There’s a game every afternoon in March. Check the schedule for details, and stay the night with us!
