Beautiful Surprise Stadium is located in the Northwest region of Phoenix and is home to two Major League Baseball teams as well as an AFL team. Surprise Stadium was built in 2003 and was created by HOK, in an attempt to seduce not just one, but two Major League teams into leaving the sunshine state of Florida and jump ship from the "Grapefruit League" over to the "Cactus League" of Arizona. In order to entice both the Rangers and the Royals to leave their baseball only facilities in Baseball City Florida and Port Charlotte Florida, a well appointed stadium would need to be created, to make the East Coast to West Coast jump, an easy decision.
