Directions to Chase Field
Wyndham Hotel - Phoenix (where I stayed this trip). It was just fine and was walking distance to the stadium.
Phoenix Coyotes (NHL)
Labor Day Weekend, 2007
Ease of getting in and out of stadium:
Excellent. I was able to walk there from the hotel I stayed at in Copper Square.
Customer service at Chase Field was excellent. It may even be better than Coors Field.
Here's the front of Chase Field. A light rail system is currently being built that, when finished, will take fans directly to Chase Field.
The roof was closed all three games I went to here. And a good thing. It was 105 degrees outside. This photo shows the AC pipes (those white tubes) all around the seating area. And, they were on all levels in the ballpark.
One nice feature of this park was they had the starting line ups posted way before game time. Assisted me in completing my scorecard in advance.

Chase Field keeps a running total of how many strike outs the D-backs have had during the season. I'm not sure if it is all games or just home games. I'll check it out and post findings.
Chase Field is a very nice facility. Although I quite enjoyed (temperature wise) the roof being closed, I still prefer watching a ballgame outdoors. I would and will come back here.
