Better with the roof closed Sep 09, 2016
Located in the downtown area, Chase Field has been home of the Arizona Diamondbacks since their start in 1998. And one of the few ballparks to have a retractable roof. It is part of the sports complex, that also includes the arena of the Phoenix Suns.

Getting to it, I would recommend parking in somewhere farther away, and just walk to the ballpark. Luckily for me, I parked at a hostel, which was a short walking distance away. The area around it, can be very chaotic.

As the team does not really have much of a history, there is really not much to see around the ballpark. There is the APS Solar Pavilion, which is a structure that provides cover for fans. And as the name would indicate, it is powered by solar energy. Probably trying to be more environmentally-friendly.

And another being the swimming pool, which is located at the outfield seats. You will have to arrange ahead of time, to be allowed to go inside the pool and have a pool party.

I do think it was an okay place to watch a ballgame, and with the roof closed, a lot more tolerable, as it can reach over 100F outside, during most of the season. And definitely one of the more cheaper ones, as the place rarely sells out. Certainly does not help that the team is currently not doing good, but they are a team on the rise.

I think Chase Field is worth checking out if time permits. And there is the option of watching part of the game for “free”, at the TGI Friday’s restaurant. And I say it that way, because I am sure that you need buy something in the restaurant to stay.

Not one of the best, but not one of the worst either. It serves its main purpose, which is to watch a baseball game in much comfortable conditions, at much more affordable prices. And a good way to spend an evening in Phoenix, if needing something to do.

Also, on the night of postgame fireworks, you can even watch it from outside the ballpark.

Chase Field, Home of the Arizona Diamondbacks Oct 13, 2008
We went up to see the Angel take on the Diamondbacks. We took a tour of the stadium, I can't remember how much that was, but it wasn't expensive. The tour was cool cause we took the tour like 4 hours before the game so the players were there. The only thing that sucked about that is we didn't get to see the clubhouse. We saw Jeff Weaver just walking around in the hallways. He posed for a pic, he had the funniest look on his face, but for some reason none of our cameras worked at that momment. I loved that the field was inside and air conditioned, cause I don't know if I could have dealt with the heat. I liked the rule about not being able to walk in the isle way until the ball is out of play. You are allowed to walk up but the ushers won't let you walk down. Less people to block my view of the game. Awsome!! We walked around the whole stadium and it looked like there wasn't a bad seat in the house. The food is awsome. There is a place called Garcia's. Omg they have the best tacos ever! They were so good I had to get them again the next day. Loved those tacos! Another cool thing about the stadium is that there is a pool in centerfield. I heard you had to reserve the pool right when the schedule comes out just to get it, and you have to have a certian amout of people in your group too. That would be cool to do, watch a baseball game while swimming. So far I think Chase Field is the best stadium I have been to yet. I have been to Petco, Angel Stadium, Dodger Stadium, Yankee Stadium, and Chase Stadium.

I've got a chance to visit Chase Field, back when it was known as the BOB. But not for a game or tour. Enjoyed sitting by the field, at that restaurant (don't recall the name) inside the stadium.
