Loud Downtown Tonight

From Midnight tonight til Tuesday evening at 5pm, Downtown Phoenix is going to sound an awful lot like the Fast and the Furious or perhaps the Indy 500, as race-organizers test some new sound-muffling technology to protect a 911 call center downtown. Check out the course map for the tests, and note that tests will be during the day tomorrow, so get ready for some loud noises as part of the setup for this fall’s downtown rally.

Spring Training Begins!

The weather’s turning warmer, and it should be 80 by the weekend again. The sky’s crystal clear and there’s something in the air. The return of Spring Training Baseball games is here again! Yesterday Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon threw out the first pitch from the mound of the Maryvale Baseball Park, a little low and in the dirt, but it made it the whole way! Over the next four weeks, there will be games spotted throughout the Phoenix area, at Papago Park in Tempe, at Surprise Stadium in Surprise, at the Peoria Baseball Complex, the familiar sound of the crack of wood on the ball will echo throughout the valley. Tourists will come for miles around, not knowing what brought them there, for it is money they have, and peace they lack.

Play Ball! If you want to check out a game, here’s the schedule, and feel free to pick up tickets from Phoenix-based Team One Tickets.
