Scottsdale Attractions: Scottsdale Scorpions Baseball
If you’re looking for Scottsdale attractions, look no further – the city of Scottsdale is home to great baseball action this fall as the Scottsdale Scorpions once again tear up the Arizona Fall League. This year’s Scorpions feature an exciting team of minor league prospects from five Major League organizations including the Boston Red Sox, Philadelphia Phillies, Los Angeles Angels, Washington Nationals and San Francisco Giants. Here are just a few reasons to root on your 2011 Scorpions at Scottsdale Stadium this year.
Bryce Harper: The number-one pick in the 2010 Amateur Baseball Draft has been described by many sources as the most exciting prospect to come along since Mickey Mantle. An outfielder with a sweet left-handed swing, light-tower power and a cannon of an arm, this 19-year-old wonderboy has all the tools to be the next Major League superstar. And you don’t have to travel outside of the city of Scottsdale to see him launch baseballs toward the moon.
Mike Trout: Ranked by many baseball experts (including ESPN) as the number-one prospect in the entirety of the minor leagues, this power-hitting outfielder has already tasted the big show with the Los Angeles Angels. Trout teams up with Harper to create the most exciting outfield the Arizona Fall League has seen in decades.
Scottsdale Stadium: The intimate 12,000-seat Scottsdale Stadium is the perfect place to relax on a warm autumn night, grab a beer and a hot dog and catch a game. With every seat so close to the field, you’ll feel like you’re right in the middle of the action.
The Price: Adult tickets are only $7.00, while senior citizen and youth tickets come in at a mere $6.00. Why shell out upwards of $50 to see Harper and Trout in Washington or LA when you can see them right here in the city of Scottsdale for less than the price of a beer at Dodger Stadium?
Boasting a lineup that many Major League teams would trade for in an instant, this year’s Scorpions are definitely a Scottsdale attraction you don’t want to miss. So head on out to the ballpark this November. When these future stars step to the plate in the World Series, you can always say you saw them way back when.
