On the Road with Tom and Gloria travel blog

There is a brand new - amazing - spring training facility in Scottsdale called Salt River Fields. The facility is the winter home of the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Colorado Rockies. There are 15 teams in the Cactus League and they are all in the greater Phoenix area.

Tonight Jim and Diane took me to a game between the Dodgers and the DBacks. They had purchased the tickets as my Christmas present last year. At first we didn't think we would be able to go because it rained like mad in the morning and early afternoon. But by 5 o'clock the game had still not been cancelled so we thought we would check it out. We no sooner hit the 202 to Scottsdale when the sun started to peek through the clouds and the pavement was dry. The temperature , however, remained at 50 degrees and it would have been very uncomfortable had we not bundled up and sat under a blanket. I had a great time - the Dbacks won - and I was so happy to get to see this gorgeous new facility.
