Salt River Fields: A Pictorial Tour of The New Spring Training Home of the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies

When Salt River Fields (SRF) officially opens its doors on Saturday for the 2011 Arizona Cactus League season, the Valley will boast one of the most impressive spring training facilities in the country.

The first baseball complex in the nation to be constructed on Native land, Salt River Fields at Talking Stick will play host to the Arizona Diamondbacks' and the Colorado Rockies' practice seasons. Games are scheduled daily from February 26 through March 29, so there will be ample opportunities to take in the sights.
