Chase Field


Even before the Arizona Diamondbacks were awarded a franchise, plans were already in place to fund the construction of a baseball only stadium in Phoenix AZ. In 1994 the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors approved a quarter-cent increase in the county sales tax to pay for the government funded portion of the stadium. This funding source would only go into effect if Arizona was given an expansion franchise which occurred on March 9, 1995.

A ground breaking ceremony was held at the site on November 16, 1995 for construction to begin on a retractible roof stadium to be open in 1998 for the first game in Diamondbacks history. When the stadium was opened it was named Bank One Ballpark which it remained until September 23, 2005 when the name was changed to Chase Field as a result of a merger between Bank One and JP Chase Morgan. Since 1998 the Arizona Diamondbacks have called Chase Field home.

In this section you will find details about the various aspects of Chase Field and what makes it one of the most unique venues in Major League sports.
