This is the most likely landing spot for Diamondbacks if they leave Chase

The Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Community may be the most likely landing spot for the Arizona Diamondbacks if the team’s spat with Maricopa County over Chase Field results in an in-market relocation.

But a move out of Chase Field and possibly downtown Phoenix might not be easy even though the D-backs already have their spring training on the Salt River reservation just east of Scottsdale.

The first challenge is money and whether potential changes to the current gaming compact between Arizona and Native American tribes, which expires in 2025, might complicate or derail construction of what could be a new $500 million ballpark.
