It was the home of the Phoenix Firebirds of the Pacific Coast League from 1992 until 1997, when the team moved to Fresno, Californiamarker and became the Grizzlies, in order to make room for the National League's Arizona Diamondbacks, who began play in 1998.

The stadium underwent a $23.1 million renovation in 2006. In return, the San Francisco Giants agreed to play at the stadium for an additional 20 years, through 2025, with an option to extend the lease to 2035.

The Giants hold their major league and minor league training operation at the two facilities. Scottsdale Stadium is consistently one of the top attended venues in Arizona's Cactus League. The Scottsdale Charros organize and promote San Francisco spring training in the city. In 2009 the Giants will play a record 21 home games at Scottdale Stadium from February 26th-April 1st.

The stadium is also host of the Scottsdale Scorpions in the Arizona Fall League, and hosts the Fall League's championship game at the end of November. During the summer the stadium is home the Arizona League Giants of the Arizona League. The stadium is also available to rent and hosts numerous parties, events and meetings throughout the year.

The stadium was built on the site of the old Scottsdale Stadium, built in 1956, which also hosted the Giants as well as the Baltimore Orioles, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs and Oakland A's. The ballpark was constructed in less than a year to avoid having the Giants play their spring games at another location.
