Rockies consider moving spring site

The Colorado Rockies are looking to move to the Phoenix area for spring training, most likely in 2011. They have been in Tucson since their inception in 1993. The only major league baseball teams with a longer tenure in Arizona are the Cubs, who have been in Mesa since 1979; the Giants, who have been in Scottsdale since 1981; and the A's, who have been in Phoenix since 1982. The Angels moved to Tempe and Seattle to Peoria in 1993, the same year the Rockies began training in Tucson.

The Rockies can opt out of their lease in Tucson because the Chicago White Sox moved to Glendale this year, leaving only the Rockies and Diamondbacks in Tucson. The Rockies looked into remaining in the Tucson area, but local officials have been unable to come up with the financial package to build a new facility.

The most likely option for the Rockies will be a shared complex with Arizona on Gila River Indian Reservation near Chandler, which is on the south side of metropolitan Phoenix.

    I have been a full time Fan of the Rocks since they started and have attended all Spring camps. I doubt that I would still participate if they move to the OVER USED PHEONIX area. Hard to get around and more expensive than TUCSON. Once again it's all about KEEPING UP WITH THE JONES's. At the exspense of the community & FANS.

    It's not the team abandoning you, it is the city of Tucson who doesn't know how to keep businesses in town. Phoenix and the metro area know how to lure teams. These communities know "build it and they will come" is the way to go and all the revenue that comes with a team. Parking, hotels, rental cars, airfare, vacation spending. All this is BIG money and Tucson still wants to be a small western town. Well that is what a few of the city leaders think but just like those in Washington DC, they are out of touch with the real residents of a fine town Tucson.
