Single-game attendance record set at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick

A sold-out crowd of 14,035 at the March 16 Arizona Diamondbacks game set the single-game record for Salt River Fields at Talking Stick.

The previous facility record was set on March 27, 2017 with 14,002 fans, according to a press release on the facility in its ninth season.

With more than 150 sellouts since 2011, the D-backs and Rockies drew more than 300,000 fans at Salt River Fields last year for the eighth consecutive season and is the only MLB complex to accomplish the feat, the release noted.

The complex has received more than 35 accolades and honors from national and local publications, receiving titles ranging from “Best Cactus League Spring Training Complex” to “Number 1 Spring Training Facility in the Cactus League.”

Also, the complex is the first Spring Training facility to receive a gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Program and the first Spring Training complex to be built on Native American land, added the release, noting limited tickets remaining for the D-backs home games at Salt River Fields.
