The Scottsdale City Council approving plans for a $50 million renovation to the ballpark. The City will pay $35 million. The Giants will add $15 million, with the Scottsdale Charros adding $2.7 million and the concessionaire, Arizona Sports Services, chipping in $2.5 million.
Scottsdale is on its way to begin renovations at the beloved downtown stadium, after a funding agreement for nearly $50.6 million was reached.
During a March 19 Scottsdale City Council meeting, elected officials unanimously approved a memorandum of understanding with the San Francisco Giants and the Scottsdale Charros requiring binding capital financial commitments to Phase 1 of the Scottsdale Stadium renovation project.
The Charro Lodge’s VIP experience at Scottsdale Stadium can be summed up with three words: shade, service and socializing.
“It’s just a great atmosphere,” said Dennis Robbins, executive director of the Scottsdale Charros. “People are here not really to watch baseball, but just to socialize and hang out.”
The Scottsdale Charros have been hosting spring training baseball since 1961, with the Charro Lodge opening its doors in 1996.
