New Spring Training ballpark for Diamondbacks and Rockies sure to be a Home Run with fans

Spring Training is right around the corner, and a new ballpark is about to be seen by many for the first time.  After spending 13 years in Tucson, the Arizona Diamondbacks, as well as the Colorado Rockies, have moved to the new Salt River Fields at Talking Stick in Scottsdale, AZ.  This 140-acre site is the first Major League Spring Training facility built on Indian land, and offers many amenities that will surely make it a fan favorite.

Fan comfort was considered when the stadium was designed, and about 80 percent of the 7,000 seats will be shaded from the hot sun.  In addition, there will be two outfield lawn areas, as well as three party decks accessible to fans.  Spectators will also enjoy viewing the largest video screen of any spring training ballpark.

Within the complex, there is also a three acre lake, and unmatched panoramic views of surrounding mountains, including Camelback and the Superstitions.  Include reasonably priced tickets, and the new stadium located west of the 101 and north of Indian Bend Road should be a big success.  With the first game scheduled for February 26th, Salt River Fields at Talking Stick is primed to offer the ultimate baseball fan experience as the newest, and one of the finest parks in the Cactus League.
