Maryvale Baseball Park is a baseball park located in Maryvale community of Phoenix, Arizona.

The facility is owned and operated by the city's Parks and Recreation department, and holds 10,000 people. It is home stadium of the Arizona League Brewers rookie league minor league baseball team of the Arizona League. It is also the spring training home of the Milwaukee Brewers and their minor league affiliates (replacing Compadre Stadium in southeast suburban Chandler). In addition to the main stadium, the facility includes 5 full practice fields, 2 practice infields, a 2-story clubhouse building, and a 2,000-space parking facility.

In February 2018, the Brewers announced plans for a major renovation of the facility. The renovation will include a new clubhouse building, renovation of the existing Brewers clubhouse, a newly constructed agility field, a new major league practice field, new batting tunnels, covered practice mounds, a new entry plaza, and new & refurbished parking lots. Costs will be shared by the Brewers ($56-60 million), the city of Phoenix ($2 million/year over 5 years), and the Arizona Sports and Tourism Authority (approximately $5.7 million). Completion is expected by the 2019 spring training season.[1]
