On Friday, February 28, the Arizona Diamondbacks played the Colorado Rockies in the second spring training game this season at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick in Scottsdale. Baseball fans from all over the Valley and out of state enjoyed the beautiful 80-degree weather. Before the start of the game, SRPMIC Vice-President Martin Harvier and Council Member Tom Largo were recognized, and Harvier threw out the first pitch.
Every year since 2012, Community officials and representatives have been recognized at and participated in the spring training events, whether it’s throwing the first pitch, singing the national anthem or making culturally inspired presentations.
During Cactus League Spring training, fans get to enjoy all the best traditions of baseball in a relaxing environment. The stands were full of laughter, and children waited patiently to get autographs from their favorite Major League Baseball players.
