PHOENIX (AP) -- The Arizona Diamondbacks will open their final spring training season in Tucson on March 4 against the Colorado Rockies.

The Diamondbacks released their 2010 spring training schedule Tuesday and will play 15 of their 33 games at Tucson Electric Park,
the last one on March 30 against the Texas Rangers.

The Diamondbacks and Rockies will move in 2011 to their new 140-acre multipurpose spring training facility being built on Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community land east of Scottsdale.

Arizona will play 15 spring training games in the Phoenix metropolitan area, including two exhibition games against the Chicago Cubs, on April 2-3 at Chase Field to conclude the 2010 Cactus League schedule.
