The Gene C.

The Rose Garden is maintained by City of Tucson Parks and Recreation in conjunction with volunteers from The Friends of the Reid Park Rose Garden through an ongoing partnership.  Volunteers assist park maintenance workers in trimming, watering, feeding, and pruning the roses.  The Rose Society of Tucson also has been a partner with the City in the development and promotion of the garden for many years.  Donations to the Rose Garden for maintenance and upkeep and can be made through the Tucson Parks Foundation.

Hi Corbett Field

Hi Corbett Field, originally named Randolph Municipal Baseball Park, was built in 1927.  Initial home teams include the Tucson Waddies and the Tucson Cowboys of the Arizona State League.  In 1931, the Tucson Missions played in the Arizona-Texas League.  The team became the Tucson Lizards in 1932.  The Tucson Cowboys then occupied the ballpark from 1933 to 1958.

In 1946, the Cleveland Indians moved their spring training operations to Tucson.  Hiram Steven Corbett, a long-time Arizona state senator and president of the Tucson Baseball Commission, played a key role in luring the Indians to Tucson.  In 1951 the ballpark was renamed in honor of Corbett and has been known as Hi Corbett Field since then.  Hi Corbett Field continued to be the home of the Cleveland Indians spring training for 46 years.  The Colorado Rockies made Tucson their spring training home from 1993 to 2010.  Hi Corbett Field has also been the home of the Class AAA Tucson Toros, Arizona Fall Baseball League Tucson Javelinas, USA Baseball, the National Pro Fastpitch League Arizona Heat, and the Golden Baseball League Tucson Torros. 

Today, Hi Corbett Field is home to Arizona Wildcats Baseball.
