The Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community is partnering with the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks to build Salt River Fields at Talking Stick, the first Major League Baseball spring training facility to be built on Indian land in the nation.
Salt River Fields at Talking Stick will include an 11,000-seat capacity ballpark, a total of 12 practice fields and office buildings that will include Major and Minor League clubhouses, training facilities, and offices for each team. The site is near Indian Bend Road and the 101 Freeway.
The site for Salt River Fields at Talking Stick is on 140 acres of scenic landscape that has unmatched views of Camelback Mountain, the McDowell Mountains, Four Peaks, Red Mountain, and the Superstition Mountains.
Salt River Fields at Talking Stick offers the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks a unique opportunity to work collaboratively with a Native American community and to create a stadium and sports complex that showcase cultural diversity and the rich history, culture and artistic values of the Pima and Maricopa Indian tribes.
