The Arizona League Diamondbacks are a minor league baseball team located in the city of Scottsdale, Arizona, USA. They are a Class Rookie team in the Arizona League and have been a farm team of the Arizona Diamondbacks since they began play in 1996. While the Diamondbacks began play in 1998, their rookie league team started two seasons before in order to jump start player development, and were the first team with a Diamondbacks affiliation to begin play.[2]

The Diamondbacks did not field a rookie league team from 2001-2010.

Starting in 2011, the Arizona League Diamondbacks play games at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick. They previously played at Tucson Electric Park from 1998–2001 and at Scottsdale Stadium and Phoenix Municipal Stadium in 1996-97.
