Located in the revitalized downtown Phoenix area, Chase Field is one block east of US Airways Center, home of the Phoenix Suns NBA basketball team, the Phoenix Mercury WNBA basketball team, and the previous home to the Phoenix Roadrunners hockey team.
The ballpark is bounded by Jefferson Street on the north, Fourth Street on the west and Seventh Street on the east. Easiest freeway access is by taking the Seventh Street exit from either I-10 (turn south) or I-17 (turn north).
The ballpark is strategically located to several downtown venues such as the Phoenix Civic Plaza, Symphony Hall, Arizona Science Center and the Arizona Center.
This centralized location provides opportunities for fans and spectators to enjoy a variety of activities before and after each home game.
To accommodate the expected pedestrian flow pattern, the Ballpark is located as far south and east on the site as is practical to allow plenty of area to the north and west.
With an approximate elevation of 1,100 feet, Chase Field is the second highest facility in Major League Baseball, trailing only Coors Field in Denver. Scientists have estimated a fly ball will travel about 7 feet further for every 1,000 feet of altitude making Chase Field more of a hitter's park.
As a general rule, traffic is lighter using Interstate 17 and exiting on either the Seventh Avenue or Seventh Street exits.
As always, it is recommended you listen to local radio traffic bulletins to help guide your travel plans.
Legends Entertainment District
Established in 2010 as a joint venture between Major League Baseball's Arizona Diamondbacks and the National Basketball Association's Phoenix Suns, the Legends Entertainment District is designed to create an energetic backdrop for people to enjoy their downtown Phoenix experience.
The Legends Entertainment District offers:
- A comprehensive blend of large impressions and divers demographics featuring event traffic, pedestrians, mass transit, business commuters, and tourism.
- A larger-than-life creative platform that is on average five times the size of a standard 10x30 non-highway billboard. The impact is spectacular because of close proximity to the consumer.
- A unique marketing blend of digital signage and large super graphic static marketing opportunities including the largest signage available anywhere in the Phoenix Metropolitan area.
- High visibility opportunities that encompass landmark facilities such as The US Airways Center, Chase Field, and The Phoenix Convention Center extending from 1st Avenue to 7th Street and Washington to Jackson Street.
- Partners first to break ground: Anheuser-Busch, APS, Chevrolet, Fox Sports Arizona and Fry’s Food Stores.
- Includes more than 6,100 square feet of full-motion LED digital technology throughout the District, provided by Panasonic.
- Provides digital informational programming in the form of LED news tickers and other content on the LED technology, which runs 18 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Since the introduction of the Legends Entertainment District, three Arizona Diamondbacks have been honored as "Legends". Arizona Diamondbacks legend and special assistant to the president, Luis Gonzalez was the first Diamondbacks player to be featured in the Legends District in September 2011. A year later in 2012 World Series Co-MVP and Diamondbacks Legend Randy Johnson was featured.
In 2013 the Diamondbacks added a third featured member with the election of World Series Manager Bob Brenly who was chosen in a fan vote that include other nominees: Matt Williams, Steve Finley, and Curt Schilling.
The featured Legends are immortalized with a 42-foot tall Super Graphic along the District. The graphic now hangs on the Phoenix Convention Center Garage located across from Chase Field closes to the intersection of Jefferson and 7th Street.
