Photo: Chase Field Swimming Pool

The most famous feature of Chase Field is the swimming pool in the middle of the right field stands.  Groups can rent the swimming pool area to watch the games.

Some people actually swear swim suits and go in the pool.  Backyard swimming pools are popular in Phoenix, of course, so this feature does capture part of our local culture.

There was a bit of a controversy at the end of last season when the Los Angeles Dodgers clinched the pennant in a game in Phoenix.  The LA players' celebration included running out to the pool and jumping in.  Some people thought that was bad manners.   I think the answer is for the Diamondbacks to beat LA on the field, which is something that is not happening very often this season.

This week we have photos from our cruise in Mexico's Sea of Cortez posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

I don't think we have that at our arenas. Nice feature.

I've never seen that pool from this viewpoint before.

Nice shoe and a clever idea. I don't blame the Dodgers but then Phonecians have better manners than Angelinos.
