The Arizona Diamondbacks’ home stadium, Chase Field, was without fans during the 2020 season because of the pandemic. During the early stages of this season, the organization is allowing up to 20,000 fans — approximately 40% capacity — to watch games in person.

But the team has been looking to make upgrades to the 23-year-old stadium, and a bill being considered by state lawmakers could help in that process via a so-called theme park district, a tax, and bonding.

The Show spoke with Diamondbacks’ President and CEO Derrick Hall to learn the plan for these upcoming changes.
