D-Backs work to keep Tucson spring-training fans

To help take away the sting of a move from Tucson for Arizona's spring-training operations, the team is offering discounts and priority sales for spring ducats for Pima County residents.The Arizona Diamondbacks announced that Pima County residents will be able to receive 50 percent off single-game ticket prices to all D-backs' Cactus League games at the club's new Spring Training facility on Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community land beginning next year.

Details on how to purchase the half-price tickets will be announced prior to next spring.

The D-backs also announced that Tucson Electric Park Spring Training season-ticket holders will receive top priority to purchase season tickets at the new facility in 2011.

"While saluting the organization's 13 years of Spring Training in Southern Arizona as part of Tucson Fan Appreciation Day today, we wanted to offer Pima County residents an affordable option to continue following the club in person during the spring," D-backs' President & CEO Derrick Hall said.

The D-backs and Colorado Rockies will share their new 140-acre multipurpose facility that will be the first professional sports facility built in Indian land in the United States.
