Desert Sun Stadium is a stadium in Yuma, Arizona, primarily used for baseball. It was the home field of the North American League's Yuma Scorpions minor league baseball team and the Arizona Winter League and Arizona Summer League. The stadium, which originally opened in 1969, serves as the main field of the Ray Kroc Baseball Complex. It was the spring training home of the San Diego Padres from 1969 until 1994. WWE Wrestling occasionally makes a stop at the baseball complex as well.
