Arizona Fall League Moving Team To Glendale For 2013

The Arizona Fall League will have its usual six teams when it returns to action this fall, but one of those teams will have a new home stadium. Major League Baseball announced that the Phoenix Desert Dogs will relocate from Phoenix Municipal Stadium, built in 1964, to Camelback Ranch stadium in Glendale for the 2013 season.

Camelback Ranch, built in 2009, is the spring training home of the White Sox and Dodgers, both of whom will be among the teams that supply prospects for the new team. The move is part of the phasing out of Phoenix Municipal Stadium. The stadium’s lone spring training tenant, the A’s, will leave the facility to move to HohoKam Park in 2015.
