"Spring is in the air in Scottsdale as the city expresses an interest in bringing the Arizona Diamondbacks in for spring training... Although the Diamondbacks have not contacted Scottsdale, city officials plan to talk to the team, Scottsdale spokesman Pat Dodds said. "We are going to contact the Diamondbacks organization to find out whether they are open to a dialogue about possibilities for spring training in Scottsdale," Dodds wrote in an e-mail."
