After playing one spring season at Daytona Beach, the brand new American League franchise known as the Baltimore Orioles moved their spring training operations to an Arizona based ballpark, that had just completed constructionů  Scottsdale Stadium I.

The Orioles would come to Arizona and this Scottsdale Stadium I to find a new identity.
