Rockies to play 15 spring games in Phoenix

The Rockies on Wednesday got their first glimpse of spring training without the Chicago White Sox in Tucson.

Their 2009 spring training schedule includes 15 games in the Phoenix area, the most the Rockies have played there since 1997, the year before the Arizona Diamondbacks and White Sox began training in Tucson.

With the move of the Cleveland Indians and Los Angeles Dodgers to the Phoenix area and an effort to ensure there are games between each of the teams training in Arizona, the Rockies will play only four games against the Diamondbacks, two at home and two on the road.

When the Rockies play host to the Indians on March 22, it will mark Cleveland's first game in Tucson since ending a 45-year history of training at Hi Corbett Field in 1992.

The Dodgers, who will be training in Arizona for the first time, will play the Rockies on Feb. 28 and March 26 in Tucson.

The Rockies will begin their spring schedule Feb. 25 against Arizona at Hi Corbett Field, and the Arizona portion of the schedule will end with an April 2 game against the Diamondbacks at Tucson Electric Park.
