Description

Built in 1964, the 8000-seat arena, probably modest by Major League standards, has many 'firsts' to its credit and promises spectators a memorable sporting experience. It was the first air-conditioned baseball stadium and boasts a shaded concourse, comfy dugouts, an accordion roof and well-maintained turf. The ballpark is venue for various fixtures during the Oakland Athletics' Spring Training but in addition to tournaments and championships, it also hosts concerts, graduations and shows. With the backdrop of Papago Park in the distance, seats across the arena offer truly remarkable views. Its proximity to city attractions like the Phoenix Zoo, the Desert Botanical Gardens and the lively college town of Tempe makes it a must-add to your Phoenix itinerary.
