SCOTSDALE - The Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation is seeking to bring a baseball stadium and training facility to serve as the spring-training headquarters for two Arizona Cactus League teams. The site is south of Arizona highway 87 and would cost $80 million.

Clinton Pattea, president of the Fort McDowell nation, said "It will bring additional people to help our enterprises here like our gas station, our hotel and the casino."

Fort McDowell would like to partner with Fountain Hills on the project. "We're still trying to determine how Fountain Hills could be of help," said Pattea. The two communities already have an ongoing alliance to promote tourism.

Fort McDowell has worked for years to attract a major league team. In the 1990s they proposed a $40 million training facility for the Los Angeles Dodgers, but the deal fell through. The Dodgers stayed in Vero Beach, Florida and later moved to Glendale.

If the stadium efforts are successful, Fort McDowell will consider building a Marriott resort and water park to accommodate visitors, Pattea said.
