Stealing Home: Baseball in the desert, Part 1

I've got so much to say about my visit to Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona, that I decided to split the piece into two parts.

Part one is up at Stealing Home, over on The Globe And Mail's website. Read all about how the Arizona Diamondbacks hooked your boy up with a $135 next to the visiting ball club's dugout, when the visiting ball club happened to be the Toronto Blue Jays.

The 12-year-old Diamondbacks. They've "been through it all, man." And it was a pleasure to visit the oasis they call home.
