Three years after becoming a Major League Baseball expansion team in 1998, the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the New York Yankees in the World Series. Home games are played at Chase Field where you'll find a retractable roof for those hot summer days and a swimming pool. The Diamondbacks are one of two major sports teams (the NBA Phoenix Suns are the other) within close proximity of Crowne Plaza Phoenix Airport, which is a 15-minute ride to the ballpark on public transportation.

Outside Food & Drinks
Food may be brought in with you to Arizona Diamondbacks games but it must be in a clear plastic grocery-type bag. As for drinks, you can only bring regular water in sealed plastic bottles or single-serve juice boxes. No metal or glass containers are permitted.
Bring your bathing suit with you to Chase Field as it has a pool. Located right behind the center field fence, 415 feet from home plate, the fairly large pool boasts a lifeguard. There’s also a hot tub. Make sure to keep your eyes open, however, as homerun balls have landed in the water.

Primarily, it's a behind-the-scenes tour and does not include going onto the playing field. Buying tickets in advance is advisable at http://mlb.mlb.com/ari/ballpark/tours/index.jsp.
