Batter up: Ten restaurants to sample in Phoenix and Scottsdale
Welcome to Dodgers spring training 2009.
Please discard any lingering lamentations about tradition and Florida. Arizona awaits, with a shiny new $100-million stadium complex, beckoning fans to forget the economy for a few days and take refuge in the primal pleasures of baseball. Think heat, not humidity; saguaro cactus in lieu of swaying palms; fajitas instead of fried fish. Think Camelback Ranch in Glendale, the new spring home of the Dodgers.
