SSWC shows the address as 13203 S 48th St
Phoenix, AZ 85001, but I think that his question is what are the fields like. All of the fields that I have been to in Phoenix have been very nice (especially when compared with our fields on this side of the Mississippi) with grass like a golf course and soft, smooth infields, but I do not think that I had the pleasure of being at these fields. The nicest ones were Victory Lane and Rose Mofford of the ones that I have been to. Desert West was the one that I was not all that impressed with.

Godd neighborhood, 300" fenced fields. Last time I was there there were well maintained.

RIGHT on the 1-10 and Ray road. Very close to a couple of Hotels mentioned in another thread.

LOTS of weekday rush hour traffic from 6:30-9:00AM Northbound and 4:00-6:30 PM Southbound

Our team is 60 AAA and scheduled to play at the DESERT WEST complex this year, I'm sure it's not nearly as nice as the fabulous fields of PAPAGO, where we played last year...what a great place!

Most of us will be staying at the Residence Inn at Glendale, I believe it's about 6 miles (as the crow flies) from the field.

Looking at Google Earth and it shows a large bldg in the center of the 4-field complex, I assume this would be the clubhouse where food & drinks are available, right? (anyone know?).

I also noticed by using the "ruler" feature of Google Earth, that all 4 fields measure exactly 300" and look pretty decent, however there is not much shade for spectators except in the clubhouse.

Anyone know if we are allowed to bring-in our own coolers (food & drinks)?

No clubhouse. It is a snack bar and restrooms.

Shade IS limited. They recently installed shade tents at Papago and Rose Mofford. There MIGHT be some at DW also.

The facility is identical to Rose Mofford and similar to Papago but in a crappy neighborhood. Cars locked when parked AND while driving.

You can bring food and drinks but not beer but they DO sell beer there.
