Salt River Fields at Talking Stick

Another day, another ball park. This time the Mariners were playing the Arizona Diamondbacks at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick. We have been at this park before -- it's a beautiful one.

Talking Stick is the Spring Training facility for the Arizona Diamondbacks as well as the Colorado Rockies.

It was a good game. The Mariners started off with Endy Chavez's walk which he turned into two more bases with his stealing proclivities. He ended up coming home on Rob Cano's sacrifice. The second inning saw three more runs.

We got an extra ticket when we knew Granddaughter Havela was coming, so Forry didn't get to sit with us. He brought his walker and was one section over from us in the "assisted" section. I brought him a beer, then later Havela did the hot dog run.

The xeroscaping at Salt River has come a long way since we were here last year. It's a great example of what can be done with small amounts of water.

Spring baseball is doing well in the Valley. Today's game was another sell-out with 12,611 in attendance. And of course, having the Mariners win 6-3 made the day even better!
