MARYVALE — The Milwaukee Brewers held a ribbon-cutting and dedication ceremony on Tuesday, Feb. 12 at the team’s new spring training and Arizona player development complex, which also included an unveiling of the official name of the facility: American Family Fields of Phoenix.
The project includes a new 106,000 square-foot clubhouse building with locker rooms and vastly improved facilities for all of the baseball operations functions, along with a wide array of fan enhancements from new concessions, retail stores, seating and a Daktronics video board. The complex features a new entry plaza, renovated space for sports science and psychological services, an eight-lane batting tunnel, an agility field, new pitching and catching mounds, a high-performance practice field matching Miller Park’s dimensions, and improvements to each of the seven playing fields.
