7 Diamondbacks Players Share Their Favorite Places for Eats and Drinks in Metro Phoenix
Spring training is in season, and if you're wondering where to find the players, we've got a few ideas.
Spring training brings plenty of visitors to the Valley -- we're talking about baseball fanatics and players from around the league. Everyone wants a piece of the action (and the weather) and, of course, you can't participate in all the activity without also indulging in some of the Valley's restaurants and bars. If you're wondering where the players like to eat and drink -- and where you might catch a glimpse of one or two -- we've got the answer.
Find out which D-back can't get enough of the Mission's streak tacos and where Texas-boy Paul Goldschmidt goes to get a fix of his hometown eats. And for single ladies, we've got the scoop on where one the Valley's most eligible bachelors likes to hang out (and take his dates).

Favorite Restaurant: Proof at the Four Seasons
"We went to Sushi Brokers last night and that was pretty good. But you know what? Proof at the Four Seasons -- that's awesome. The windows are open to the outside and they've got dark big wooden tables. It's not fine dining, but the food is good. I got the beer-can chicken and it was really good."
Favorite Bar: Dos Gringos
