Topping-Out Ceremony Signifies an On-Track Project for Salt River Fields

Au-Authm Action News

In a topping-out ceremony, the final two beams of the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies clubhouses were hoisted up at 9 a.m. on July 23 at Salt River Fields. Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community members, dignitaries, as well as employees representing the Diamondbacks and Rockies put their signatures on the beams, which were also marked with each team’s logo.
The beams were hoisted by a giant crane, first on the Diamondbacks side, then on the Rockies side. The United States and SRPMIC flags were placed atop the beam, along with an evergreen tree.
