Diamondsback Field Building Program


"Diamonds Back" Youth Field Building Program, presented by APS

Dimonds Back Field Program logoOn March 25, 2013, the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation and APS dedicated Aaron Hill Field in Parker, Arizona. Aaron Hill Field is the 33rd field in the Diamonds Back Field Building program and will create another quality facility in a community that has a strong desire to expand youth baseball programs. According to Parker Mayor Dan Beaver, "The area of development is a centerpiece for the town and will provide a recreational amenity that is desperately needed to expand youth programs. We are now on the map to hold regional tournaments, which we have not done since 1998. Regional tournaments will fulfill our local little league's desire to meet teams that are outside Parker and enlarge our recreational community."

Since 2000, the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation has built or refurbished 33 baseball fields representing a community investment of more than $10 million. With support from APS, and charitable contributions from D-backs players, the program has allowed children from across the state to play baseball and softball at quality facilities. The fields generally feature new lights, a branded electronic scoreboard, new fencing and backstops, new irrigation and new grass and dirt with additional support provided by local contractors and businesses.

The evaluation and determination of the location of each field is determined by a grant process. A new "Diamonds Back Field" is awarded annually.
