If you’re seeking fun things to do in Phoenix, catch an Arizona Diamondbacks baseball game at Chase Field.
Chase Field(formerly Bank One Ballpark), is a baseball stadium in the heart of downtown Phoenix and home to the Arizona Diamondbacks—a major league baseball team. This isn’t just any hometown baseball stadium, though. Chase was the first-built, modern-day stadium in the United States with a retractable roof. In addition to boasting air conditioning, it also hosts a swimming pool. For those who like to live extravagantly, the pool and field-side seats can be rented for a pretty penny, making it a spectacular place to watch baseball. Many restaurants and concession stands are on premises if you get hungry or the kids get fussy. Estimated construction cost of this state-of-the-art baseball facility and baseball enthusiast’s nirvana: $354 million.
The AZ Diamondbacks played their first season at Chase Field in 1998 and won the 2001 World Series there against the New York Yankees. Arizona baseball fans will never forget that thrilling, winning day.
Arizonans are super serious about sports: Phoenix is one of only eight cities in the nation to have professional teams in all four major sports – baseball, basketball, football and hockey.
