What makes Salt River Fields different from other baseball training facilities is first of all its size. It boasts 140 acres, 12 practice fields, office buildings for both major league teams as well as minor league ones, training facilities, and an 11,000 seating capacity. In addition, the buildings house in excess of 60 restaurants and stores along with an 11-plex modern theatre. Also unique is that this baseball complex is the first of its kind to exist on official Indian land. The new stadium is located in the Prima tribe and Maricopa tribe community, with its members working closely on this project.
One of the best aspects of the new stadium is its location. Technically it is near the intersection of Indian Bend Road and Highway 101 in the Scottsdale Pavilions in Scottsdale, Arizona. Aesthetically, it is surrounded by breathtaking Camelback Mountain, McDowell Mountains, Four Peaks, Red Mountain, and the Superstition Mountains.
Both the Diamondbacks and the Rockies previously trained in Tucson, Arizona, with the Diamondbacks at Electric Park and the Rockies at Hi Corbett Field. Their new facility has a lot to offer to the teams and visitors alike. With its size and beautiful location, and housing America's favorite pastime, Salt River Fields at Talking Stick is sure to wow all who come to enjoy it.
