It's training, they train in the same places they play their preseason... the exact reason, I don't know... just to give the players the feel of being back on the field, outdoors... rather than sticking them on planes and flying them all over right when they getting back into the sport for the next year.

Like Coder said, it's more practical than anything. No one wants to go flying around all over the place for the preseason.

Plus a lot of places still may have shitty weather so may as well play where it's nice.

well, most profesionall ball players can't be expected to be responsible for themselves, so traditionally, coaches have training locations scheduled away from their family and places for them to go and fuck off. It's basically getting them used to working and living together as a team, without the distractions that come from being in their hometown. Some of the places aren't really that far away, and then some football teams get to stay home and are actually treated with some dignity. Also like error mentioned, who want's to train in the cold?

but if you're asking why do they play in different stadiums for preseason games, then of course their are going to be home and away teams. I'm not sure how it goes in baseball, but i'm pretty sure in football, they get to play with the teams closest to them, so they don't have to travel much.

Exo put it perfectly.

The Bengals training camp is in Georgetown College in Georgetown, KY. It is 70 miles and 1 hour away from Cincinnati. It is also in the middle of nowhere, so it builds team unity and keeps the temptations of Cincy (like there is any) away from the players.

Fans don't like the distance they have to go to see the camp, many want it moved to Paul Brown Stadium.

There are like 4 different fields or something that host spring training... different teams train at different fields. That's what the game are based on.
