  • Camelback Ranch

    Anybody have the Dodgers-White Sox game on MLB Network on? This new spring training complex for both teams looks interesting.

    The most unique element seems to be that it actually has no backstop--just netting.

    The lack of a backstop, and the color of the seats remind me of Dodger Stadium.

    The organ is also very similar-sounding to that used at Chavez Ravine.

            Vin Scully said the design of the stadium, and the entire complex, was heavily inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright.

            I have only one word for what I've seen so far - Stunning.
            I see great things in baseball. It's our game - the American game.

              Well, one of Frank Lloyd Wright's work can been seen on the opposite side of the Valley; Gammage Auditorium on the SW corner of the Arizona State University Campus.

                  Looks like the field level from Dodger Stadium was transported to Arizona for Spring Training. Very fitting!

                    Taliesin West meets baseball

                    This is a GREAT ballpark. No forced asymmetry, innovative seat colors and architecture inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's nearby Taliesin West School of Architecture...
