Scottsdale Stadium II came to life after historic Scottsdale Stadium I was torn down following the 1991 spring training season. The former Scottsdale ballpark gave birth to the professional lives of Brooks Robinson, Carl Yastrzemski and Ricky Henderson. It was also however… a rather utilitarian looking ballpark with no roof structure and not much in the way of architectural beauty (despite looking like a big barn from the outside). Scottsdale Stadium II meanwhile seems to be at one with the stunning Arizona city of Scottsdale that surrounds it. The ballpark is built right into the city block that it lives on.. the perfect stadium for the perfect city.
