Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota is leased to the Orioles

The year in which each teamís current lease to train at their present location expires is listed on this page.

Generally, the expiration year listed is the last year that spring training will be held, under a current agreement, at a particular facility, as leases are usually set to expire following the completion of that year's spring training season. For example, the lease for the Angels in Tempe expires on December 31, 2025.

But it's worth noting that leases often contain options for additional years that can be exercised by teams upon the ending year of the original lease term. Lease extension options usually come in five or ten year increments, and are often available in pairs. For instance, the A's have two 5-year options while the Twins have two 10-year options to extend their leases at their respective camps.

That stated, here are the...

Practice field used by the Dodgers at Camelback Ranch
Itís not just the stadiums that teams play games in, but all the facilities an organization uses that are governed by leases, which are referred to legally as a facility use agreement. Most noticeable to fans among the facilities used are the various practice fields on which players train. Seen here is one such field owned by Glendale; like everything else made available to the Dodgers on their Camelback Ranch campus it's leased to them through 2028.
