Tracy Ringolsby of Inside The Rockies has released a preliminary spring training schedule for the 2011 Colorado Rockies. The schedule lists 30 of the 34 potential games to be played next season.â†µ
If you’re planning a trip down to Scottsdale next spring, make sure to glance at this calendar first. A final exhibition that does not appear on this calendar will take place at the Rockies’ AA affiliate Tulsa Drillers on March 30. Tickets are now available for this game, which will be played at the recently constructed ONEOK Field in Tulsa, Oklahoma.â†µ
This will be the first spring training away from Hi-Corbett Field, as the Colorado Rockies are finishing up construction on Salt River Fields, a brand new training complex they are sharing with their division rivals, the Arizona Diamondbacks.â†µ
Shaun Rachau, Vice President of Communications for the Arizona Diamondbacks, recently released a picture of the complex which is still under construction. It is expected to be finished by February 2011.
