Quick Facts: Rating: 3 baseballs
This 2003 addition to the Cactus League landscape lured in both the Kansas City Royals and the Texas Rangers for their pre-season workouts. It is one of the largest parks on Arizona’s spring training landscape. As such, it was actually too big for independent league ball, which it saw for one season of the Golden League.

The facility is certainly adequate, although it lacks the bells and whistles of more recent ballparks. It is also well out of the way, a good distance from freeways, although the newly built Loop 303 does pass within a few miles of the park.
