A young but proud organization

The stadium is most proud of hosting Games 1, 2, 6 and 7 of the 2001 World Series between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the New York Yankees. Arizona won all four of those contests.  A special room is dedicated to the Diamondbacks heroes of said World Series and you can see the real Commissioner’s Trophy on display.

They say Chase Field wasn’t built by architects but by engineers. A long story about the construction going back to running out of money before architects could make it pretty. Instead, the engineers just made it functional. That’s why it just works right and feels good. Definitely make this stadium part your bucket list stadium tour.

The Cubs make just one more trip there this season – a three-game set in Mid-September. So, if you’re looking for a midweek getaway, maybe put this on your list. It’s worth the time and money to take in a ballgame here.
