Dbacks Spring Training Schedule announced

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX — The Arizona Diamondbacks announced their 28-game Spring Training schedule, which features 15 home games and one road game at the award-winning Salt River Fields at Talking Stick and two exhibition games at Chase Field. This season will mark the fourth year at the shared Spring Training facility with the Colorado Rockies on Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community land near Scottsdale.

 

The D-backs open their 17th Spring Training on February 26 at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick against the Dodgers and will travel to Sydney, Australia during the middle of Spring Training, March 17-25, to officially open the 2014 season on March 22 and 23 before returning to Phoenix to complete the 2014 Spring Training schedule.

 

The D-backs have nine games against their National League West rivals with three games against the Dodgers and Rockies, a pair of games versus the San Diego Padres and one game against the San Francisco Giants. The D-backs will play four evening games at Salt River Fields, including matchups on March 1 vs. the Chicago Cubs, March 3 vs. the Rockies, March 10 vs. the Seattle Mariners and an away game against the Rockies on March 12. The last night game will mark the first of a two-game set against the Chicago Cubs on March 28 & 29 at Chase Field to wrap up Spring Training. 

 

Tickets for all games at Salt River Fields are priced from $9-28. General admission lawn seating that will hold 4,000 people will be $9 and tickets for 7,000 reserved seats in the seating bowl range from $19-$28. The D-backs Plan offers tickets for each of their 15 home games at Salt River Fields that range in price from $135-$420. The two exhibition games held at Chase Field are not included in the Spring Training season ticket package but are available in the D-backs' regular season ticket packages.

 

Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community members and D-backs and Rockies season-ticket holders may purchase season-ticket plans for Spring Training games at Salt River Fields exclusively, between Dec. 16-18. Season-ticket plans for the D-backs' 15 home games and all 31 Spring Training games at Salt River Fields featuring the D-backs and Rockies will go on sale to the public beginning Dec. 19.

 

Individual game tickets for all 31 games at Salt River Fields will go on sale beginning at 10 a.m. on Jan. 11. Tickets can be purchased in person at the D-backs Ticket Office at Chase Field, at dbacks.com/spring or by calling 888.490.0383 or 480.362.WINS (9467). Individual tickets for the two exhibition games at Chase Field will go on sale at a later date.

 

Last season the D-backs sold out 12 Spring Training games at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick. In addition, the D-backs set a single-game attendance record with 12,864 fans on March 24 versus Seattle. The D-backs' average Spring Training attendance of 11,021 is the highest in the Major Leagues. With the help of the D-backs' sold-out crowd of 11,576 fans on the Opening Day of Spring Training last season, Salt River Fields surpassed the one-million mark within just 24 months of operation. The total includes all ticketed events at Salt River Fields, including concerts, festivals and Spring Training games since the complex opened in 2011. 

 

Salt River Fields is the first Spring Training facility built on Native American land. Owned by the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, the 140-acre site near the Pima-Loop 101 Freeway and Indian Bend Rd. consists of separate training facilities and clubhouses accommodating each team as well as an 11,000-seat ballpark featuring a uniquely designed roof structure offering fans in the cross aisle plenty of shade. Salt River Fields at Talking Stick is one of four entertainment venues carrying the "Talking Stick" brand along with Talking Stick Golf Club, Talking Stick Resort and The Pavilions at Talking Stick.

 

Following the 2011 season, Salt River Fields at Talking Stick received the Ballpark of the Year Award from Ballparkdigest.com, Baseballparks.com and Digital Ballparks and was named Project of the Year by ENR Southwest. In addition, the New Times of Phoenix named Salt River Fields the "Best Place to Watch a Spring Training Game" and the complex became the first Spring Training facility to receive a gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Program.

 

The facility was one of four finalists for 2012 Sports Facility of the Year from the Sports Business Journal and was honored this season as the winner of the 2013 Good Design is Good Business competition from Architectural Record Magazine. The complex was also voted on by Phoenicians as the 2013 Reader's Choice for Best Live-Music Venue on AZCentral.com.
