This is the spring training home of the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies. The dates of the event will be June 10-12, 2011 and will be one of the very first amateur tournament events held at the incredible facility.

Each game at the tournament will have PG scouts and an official scorekeeper in attendance. Fans, scouts, and college coaches that are unable to attend will be able to follow and gather information online at www.perfectgame.org where they can locate scores, game wraps, scouting blogs, and player information.
