The Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community has partnered with the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies to build a Major League Baseball spring training facility on Community land. It is the first Major League Baseball spring training facility to be built on Indian land in the nation.
The multipurpose facility includes an 11,000-seat capacity ballpark, a total of 12 practice fields and office buildings that include Major and Minor League clubhouses, training facilities, and offices for each team. The site is near Indian Bend Road and the 101 Freeway.
The site for the spring training complex is on 140 acres of scenic landscape that has unmatched views of Camelback Mountain, the McDowell Mountains, Four Peaks, Red Mountain, and the Superstition Mountains.
The site offers the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies a unique opportunity to work collaboratively with a Native American community and to create a stadium and sports complex that showcase cultural diversity and the rich history, culture and artistic values of the Pima and Maricopa Indian tribes.
