As the highlight of the Arizona Fall League's season, the Rising Stars Game assembles top prospects from all 30 MLB organizations to compete in a nationally televised display of baseball's future stars. Every August, each major-league club selects six Double- and Triple-A players to send to Arizona, where they can keep playing in the off-season under the close scrutiny of the teams' scouts. Held at several teams' spring-training grounds—including the Diamondbacks' Salt River Fields at Talking Stick—the league's close-knit competition ensures that the majors' future stars can hone their skills close to home against similar talent, rather than heading to the Caribbean to practice batting coconuts out of palm trees. The festivities don't end once the final out is called, either - a post-game fireworks display fills the air above the park with bombastic blasts and multicolored explosions.

Salt River Fields at Talking Stick

Amid the smell of blooming hyacinths and the colorful ensigns of freshly emerged butterflies, one need only turn to Salt River Fields at Talking Stick for proof of an encroaching spring. As the spring-training grounds for both the Colorado Rockies and the Arizona Diamondbacks, the park—named as an homage to the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community—sports 12 baseball diamonds, giving fans ample opportunity to watch the action and practice voicing play-by-plays of groundskeepers mowing the adjacent fields. In addition to spring-training bouts, Salt River Fields also hosts numerous special events, such as arts festivals and charity sports events.
