The San Francisco Giants will play 33 preseason games in Arizona starting March 3.

The G-men released their 2012 Cactus League schedule on Friday.

The preseason schedule includes an additional three games in the Bay Area – two at AT&T Park and one in Oakland, the team said.

Of the 33 Cactus League games in Arizona, 16 will be played at Scottsdale Stadium.

The Giants have trained in Scottsdale since 1982. They drew 160,574 fans last spring, an average of 10,036 per game. Their overall attendance ranked second in the Cactus League behind Arizona, the team said.

The Giants’ tentative 2012 regular season schedule was released last month. Their season opener is in Arizona on Friday, April 6, and their home opener against the Pittsburgh Pirates is on Friday, April 13.
