The home field of Major League Baseball's Arizona Diamondbacks, Chase Field is a technological and environmental wonder, with a retractable roof to keep things cool during hot summers, and a swimming pool on-site just in case. If you can't make a game, tours are offered most days (call to reserve your spot, as games and other events can affect the schedule).
