The Arizona Diamondbacks released a 2012 spring-training schedule that shows 19 games at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick — including two “away” games against Colorado — as well as a slew of night games and two matches against the Milwaukee Brewers at Chase Field.
The D-backs open their 15th Spring Training on March 3 with split-squad contests against the Colorado Rockies at Salt River Fields at 1:10 p.m. and the San Francisco Giants at Scottsdale Stadium at 1:05 p.m. The D-backs’ home portion of their schedule opens on March 4 vs. the Giants at 1:10 p.m. and closes on April 2 vs. the Cubs at 1:10 p.m.
Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community members and D-backs and Rockies season-ticket holders may purchase season-ticket plans for Spring Training games at Salt River Fields exclusively between Dec. 5-9. Season-ticket plans for the D-backs’ 16 home games at Salt River Fields will go on sale to the public beginning Dec. 12.
We do have our second schedule conflicts of the spring season. The Giants show two games with the Rockies on March 3-4; the Rockies don’t show either game, and the Diamondbacks show two games with the Giants on those games. We’ll assume for now the Rockies and Diamondback schedules are correct, but be warned things could change.
