The fall brings new beginnings in many different ways for Arizona’s professional sports teams.
While the Diamondbacks season will wrap up in the fall, it marks the tip-off for the Suns as well as a puck drop for the Coyotes in Tempe.
The winding months of 2022 will be an exciting time for sports fans in the Valley, so let’s take a look at some of the key dates:
Sunday, Sept. 25: Diamondbacks’ final home game
If you haven’t had the chance to catch a D-backs home game at Chase Field, you still have more than a month to get out to the ballpark.
Arizona will host its final home game of the regular season on Sept. 25, when division rival San Francisco comes to town.
The D-backs have already exceeded last season’s win total and continue to get contributions from future franchise cornerstones such as Zac Gallen, Daulton Varsho and Alek Thomas. ESPN’s top-ranked prospect Corbin Carroll is also expected to be called up in the final month of the regular season.
Wednesday, Oct. 19: Suns’ season opener
Phoenix opens the year against the team that ended last year’s playoff run, the Dallas Mavericks. Luka Doncic and the Mavs visit Footprint Center on a Wednesday for a nationally televised game on ESPN.
The Suns hope to avenge their Western Conference Semifinals series defeat with a returning core led by Chris Paul and Devin Booker.
It’s the start of a challenging opening stretch for the team that last season won a franchise-record 64 regular season games. Phoenix begins at home against Dallas, visits Portland and the Los Angeles Clippers, then hosts Golden State, New Orleans, Houston, Minnesota and Portland twice in a row.
Friday, Oct. 28: Coyotes’ first game in Tempe
The Arizona Coyotes will finally begin their Tempe tenure at ASU’s Mullett Arena, hosting the Winnipeg Jets on a Friday night.
The Coyotes will be six games into the season by their home opener.
Arizona will be playing this season at ASU, in front of a smaller crowd that could make for a raucous environment.
Every weekday: Trust
It takes trust among teammates and coaches to make an unforgettable run to a Super Bowl or grind through an 82-game NHL season.
Dr. Jay Schwartz at Schwartz Laser Eye Center knows all about trust.
Schwartz Laser Eye Center is the official ophthalmologist for the Suns, D-backs and team LASIK Surgeon for the Coyotes.
Dr. Schwartz has not only aided elite athletes with their vision for decades but has also helped thousands of Phoenicians with their ophthalmology needs by offering the latest in refractive surgery and general eye care.
“I am honored to work so closely with so many of our local teams and players,” Dr. Schwartz said. “I do not take lightly the trust that they have placed in me. I feel the same way about every patient that walks through my door. I appreciate their trust in me and provide the best care I can no matter who I am seeing.”
When you come to Schwartz Laser Eye Center, you know you are receiving nothing short of the best care available. Patients come to the practice from all over the country because of its reputation.
Schwartz and his talented team offer the ultimate care in advanced LASIK technology and a full suite of surgical laser procedures to help you improve your vision and change the quality of your life.
- LASIK vision correction: Laser vision correction with LASIK can be a life-changing experience. By permanently correcting visual errors, LASIK reduces or eliminates your need for glasses and contact lenses. It corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, which are refractive errors caused by irregularly shaped or curved corneas. The goal of LASIK is to reshape the cornea so it alters the way light enters the eye and vision becomes sharper and more focused. People seeking LASIK in Scottsdale and the surrounding areas trust Dr. Jay Schwartz and the team at Schwartz Laser Eye Center for their vision correction surgery.
- EVO + Visian ICL: If you have been told you are not a candidate for LASIK, you may be a candidate for EVO + Visian ICL. For people who want to live without the burden of glasses and contact lenses, EVO+ Visian ICL® offers an alternative route to improved eyes. EVO+ Visian ICL® gives you the freedom of clear, crisp vision. It is a refractive implant designed to correct myopia (nearsightedness) and astigmatism. This implantable lens offers permanent vision improvement but is also removable.
- Clear Lens Extraction: Clear lens extraction is a procedure almost identical to cataract surgery. It typically takes about 15 minutes and is performed on an outpatient basis, so you can return home the day of your procedure. You have a choice of several different intraocular lens implants (IOL). The eye doctors will examine each patient’s prescription and listen to his or her personal preferences so that, together, they can choose the IOL that is best for the patient.
The Schwartz Laser Eye Center has also done spring training eye exams for the D-backs, Brewers and Cubs, and has seen players from at least seven of the teams in the Valley for spring training this year alone.
With Schwartz Laser Eye Center, you can sharpen your vision and focus on what’s truly important in life like watching your favorite Arizona sports team!
