ASU students cover Brewers’ 2013 Spring Training
For six young multimedia journalists, it’s batter up this spring. Thanks to a partnership between the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University, the six – two writers, two photographers and two broadcast specialists – will take Cactus League readers behind the scenes with Monday through Friday posts on the Milwaukee Brewers.

Maryvale: Where to eat and drink before or after the game
Where to eat and drink nearby
La Piazza al Forno
It’s about 4 miles from the stadium and worth trying out. The Bianca white pizza, $12, topped with fresh mozzarella, ricotta, basil and garlic, is exceptional. Also superb is the Margherita, $10, made with San Marzano tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and basil.
Details: 5803 W. Glendale Ave., Glendale. 623-847-3301. lapiazzaalforno.com.
This place is about 15 minutes east of the stadium, so you can get a quick teriyaki fix. Try the grilled white-meat chicken and veggies with a teriyaki sauce over rice or a combo with California rolls. There’s a generous kids meal with a cookie for dessert.
Details: 914 E. Camelback Road, Phoenix. 602-277-4666.
Presto Pizza & Wings
Presto is right around the corner from the stadium. It’s popular after games because you can get two extra-large cheese pizzas and 40 wings for $35.99. If you don’t want to share, get two slices of pizza with one topping and a drink for $3.99.
Details: 5127 W. Indian School Road, Phoenix. 623-247-6368, prestopizzaandwings.com.
Garcia’s Las Avenidas
Order wings, spinach dip, mini chimichangas and quesadillas at the bar at this venerable Mexican restaurant that’s less than 10 minutes away from the stadium? They’ve got domestic and imported beers.
