The experience of Dukes' games at Bridgeforth Stadium earned them the 7th-best ranking in SJ's list of FCS schools.

Every March, baseball fans descend upon the Valley of the Sun for MLB Spring Training. While on the surface it seems like the experiences should all be similar, they most certainly are not. From the greatness of Salt River Fields (named the 22nd best stadium experience in the U.S. and Canada last year by Stadium Journey), to the ultra-crowded Maryvale Baseball Park, the Cactus League offers all kinds of experiences for every baseball fan.

The team announced it would play the 2014-15 season in a temporary structure atop a 5-story parking garage at the Plaza Casino. As the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported recently, the team will instead play at ground level in a tent-like structure built on a surface parking lot next to the Plaza.
