Scottsdale Stadium was established in 1955 on Osborne Road and has since been a significant piece of history to the state of Arizona. This stadium lasted 37 years until the city of Scottsdale decided that it was time for a new one, but this stadium was such a cherished place that it was given the same name and stayed in Old Town Scottsdale.

Since the new stadium was built, it has been the host of the MLB San Francisco Giants, and let me tell you, watching the Giants play is no joke. In addition to Spring Training baseball, the stadium hosts the Scottsdale Scorpions, a minor league team that plays there during the Arizona Fall League baseball season.  
 

Scottsdale Stadium is one of the most attractive venues to attend during the Cactus League baseball since a 23.1-million-dollar renovation in 2006. It now seats 12,000 people comfortably. Uniquely enough, in 2006 Scottsdale Stadium was lucky enough to host three world baseball classic games from pool B, and out of those three games the U.S. defeated South Africa by a whopping 17 – 0. While visiting the Valley of the Sun this Spring, be sure to plan an outing to beautiful Scottsdale Stadium to experience baseball like never before.

From the Magnuson Hotel Papago Inn, Scottsdale Stadium is a pleasant two mile stroll up N. Scottsdale Road in the warm spring sunshine.
