The Diamondbacks have made headlines in recent days not for their play on the field- which has been inconsistent of late- but for their complaints about Chase Field – which have been fairly consistent in the last year.

An attorney representing the Diamondbacks claimed in court this week that Major League Baseball was so alarmed at the condition of Chase Field (the attorney called it a ‘crisis’), that MLB might consider relocating the team from Phoenix.

Photos the Diamondbacks took of a broken pipe on June 25 were intended to bolster the team’s point, though many fans and observers thought the Diamondbacks were turning a trickle into a torrent.


Should MLB pull Diamondbacks out of Phoenix

Major League Baseball is so alarmed by equipment breakdowns at Chase Field that the Diamondbacks could be forced to leave the facility, a team attorney warned on Tuesday.

The Diamondbacks contend that since Maricopa County is acting landlord of the facility, it should be responsible for the nearly $187 million in repairs that the team says are needed.

Maricopa County’s attorney claims the equipment breakdowns at Chase Field are cosmetic and ‘have nothing to do’ with the ongoing lawsuit. As for the broken pipe that the Diamondbacks cited in court filings, Maricopa County representatives said “when a pipe breaks, it is a Diamondbacks problem.”
