At the risk of vote-splitting, I'll vote for #5 Sonoran Reach.

1) Camelback Grounds, because you'd have to be a camel to want to walk out in the open on a typical Phoenix Summer day.

2) Palo Verde Park

Saguaro Blossom Field.

you'd have to be a camel to want to walk out in the open on a typical Phoenix Summer day.


You don't have to walk very far outside to get into the ballpark, and the roof is almost always closed during the summer. It's actually very pleasant inside (at least from a weather perspective - the seats are pretty bad).
