Salt River Fields

7555 N. Pima Road Scottsdale, AZ 85256 | South Scottsdale | 480-270-5000

Location Description:

Call us softies, but we were kinda sad to see Tucson lose its last two Cactus League teams. Alas, Salt River Fields salves our conscience about thieving Tucson's teams. This gorgeous new stadium was constructed right off Loop 101 on the Salt River-Pima Indian Reservation. It's got top-notch amenities, but the view is what's truly stunning. On opening weekend, we sat on the crisp green lawn sunning ourselves while looking up at the snow-capped McDowell Mountains — one of the best baseball spectating experiences imaginable. So, yeah, we've got all the Cactus League teams now and a fantastic place to put the last two.
