The stadium hosted the Phoenix Firebirds until 1992 when Scottsdale Stadium was opened. The stadium has also hosted Arizona Fall League games during the fall. Currently, it hosts the home games of the Phoenix Desert Dogs. The Arizona Diamondbacks rookie league games were also played in the stadium during their first year in the minor-league level Arizona League. Several of the Arizona high school baseball championships are played there in early May.
