HKS has unveiled the design plans for the new Salt River Fields at Talking Stick spring training stadium.

HKS Sports and Entertainment Group sports design director Byron Chambers said the fan experience at the baseball training facility will be reinvented by designing a distinctive destination that focuses on fan connectivity to the players.

“The design will also create a unique environment that embodies the character, values and culture of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, the Colorado Rockies and the Arizona Diamondbacks,” Chambers said.

The 140-acre baseball facility is the first to be built on Native American land and will be owned by the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community.

Features of the complex include an 11,000-seat central stadium, separate training facilities and clubhouses to accommodate each team.

In addition, the facility also supports 12 practice fields and dispersed parking for around 1,600 cars.
