Salt River Fields steals the show

Salt River Fields at Talking Stick on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community

It’s been two weeks since I returned from Arizona and the Cactus League season but seeing as I’ve just created this page I think it’s worth chiming in about the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies new spring training digs. In its innaugural season Salt River Fields at Talking Stick, the first major league facility to be built on Native American land set the new standard for spring training facilities. Financed entirely with gaming revenues at no cost to tax payers, municipalities, or either franchise, the creative financing of the ballpark facility also provides the new businees model.
