The Peoria Javelinas, established in 1992, are a baseball team that plays in the West Division of the Arizona Fall League. The Javelinas play their home games in the Peoria Sports Complex in Peoria, Arizona, which is a spring training site for both the San Diego Padres and the Seattle Mariners.

For the 2011 season, Major League Baseball teams sending players to the Javelinas were: the Milwaukee Brewers, New York Mets, San Diego Padres, St. Louis Cardinals, and Seattle Mariners. For 2012 the Minnesota Twins and Cincinnati Reds were added while the Mets and Cardinals were dropped. For 2013 and 2014 the Javelinas played their games at Surprise Stadium while the Peoria Sports Complex underwent renovations. In 2013, the Houston Astros and Kansas City Royals replaced the Twins and Reds.[1] In 2014 the Atlanta Braves, Cleveland Indians, Kansas City Royals, St. Louis Cardinals, and Tampa Bay Rays sent players to the Javelinas and the usual "home" teams of San Diego and Seattle did not. However for 2015, the Javelinas returned to Peoria Sports Complex and the line up includes the Padres and Mariners along with the Atlanta Braves, Baltimore Orioles, and Cincinnati Reds.[2]
