About Chase Field
Throughout their entire history dating back to 1998, the Arizona Diamondbacks have played their home games at Chase Field. The park originally opened as Bank One Ballpark, giving it the nickname of The BOB, although it also goes by nicknames like The Snake Pit and The Aircraft Hangar. Chase Field is located in downtown Phoenix – just a short walk from Talking Stick Resort Arena, the home of the NBA’s Suns – and features a retractable roof, among many other amenities.
Best Places to Sit at Chase Field
The best seats for a Chase Field sporting event can be found in sections 121-123, which are directly behind home plate but slightly elevated to ensure a view of the entire field. Sections 115-117 and 127-129 also provide a little elevation and great sightlines. These seats will be directly behind the team dugouts but still protected by the stadium’s netting. Of course, if you want to be on top of the field, the Clubhouse Box and Dugout Box options are the way to go.
Tips for Visiting Chase Field
Chase Field’s most distinctive feature has to be the pool that sits just beyond the right-field wall. While not the cheapest way to see a game, the pool can be rented out for as many as 35 people. Needless to say, it’s the best way to keep cool while taking in a baseball game. There's also a hot tub and private patio, among other amenities for those who rent out the pool area, on top of the guarantee that everyone else in the park will be jealous of you. Of course, if you can’t afford the pool, there are misting sprays near the main gate to help fans keep cool.
Food to Try at Chase Field
It’s important to stay hydrated while attending Chase Field events in the Arizona heat, but there are also a few good options when you need to feed your hunger. In keeping with its southwest hometown, Chase Field offers a churro dog, which is essentially a donut topped with frozen yogurt, caramel, chocolate, and whipped cream. Naturally, that should be your dessert after you’ve had fried chicken, fried green tomatoes, and spicy corn fritters from Lo-Lo’s Chicken and Waffles. For something a little more traditional, the four Hungry Hill Sandwiches locations offer meatball parm sandwiches and delicious sausages.
