The original stadium was built in 1956, and served as the former Cactus League home of the Baltimore Orioles, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Oakland A’s, and now the San Francisco Giants.

Construction began in April 1991 and the new Scottsdale Stadium opened it’s doors for Spring Training on March 12, 1992. 

The facilities were renovated in 2005 to include a new team store, expanded clubhouse, baseball training and treatment room, batting tunnel, centerfield entrance, Charro Pavilion, and 1 1/2 practice fields to the east of the stadium.

Nestled in the heart of historic Old Town Scottsdale and surrounded by art galleries, restaurants and boutique shops, the Stadium has become the home of not only the San Francisco Giants and the Arizona Fall League, but also numerous special events, festivals, concerts and parties. Designed by the creators of Camden Yards in Baltimore, the Stadium is adorned with turn-of-the-century lamps, framed antique baseball gloves, and sidewalk bricks in the shape of home plate.
