SALT RIVER PIMA-MARICOPA INDIAN COMMUNITY, Ariz. — Let the games begin.

The Arizona Diamondbacks open spring training play Tuesday at 3:10 p.m. hosting the University of Arizona. Besides new faces to the Diamondbacks roster, fans will see two new food items at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick.

Anyone who loves a food challenge at the ballpark will be pleased with the latest offerings at the park near Scottsdale.

“That’s over a pound of food. A half-pound, footlong hot dog topped with Southwest mac and cheese and pulled pork. All in a bun,” he said.

The hot dog sells for $12 and the mac and cheese costs $7.

“We were trying to combine some of Southwestern food items and fans always love a challenge item. Anything big and bold fans always think is fun.”
