The stands and seating at Field #2. The complex features several baseball fields.

The "pressbox" is a tent and picnic table set up behind the backstop.

A small section of aluminum bleachers sits off to the first base side of home plate.

Another small seating section sits on the third base line.

A covered picnic area is set back from the playing fields and provides the only shaded seating at the complex.

The chain link dugouts sit at field level.

The clubhouse at the Ray Kroc Complex is nicknamed the "Swallows Ramada" as it was donated by the NPB's Tokyo Yakult Swallows while they trained at the complex.

Desert Sun Stadium, the main stadium at the complex, where the Swallows and San Diego Padres trained and the independent Yuma Scorpions played, has been converted to a soccer and football only stadium, so baseball is played exclusively on the back fields.

A city of Yuma water tower stands above Field #1.

Bullpens sit between the playing fields.

Plants grow through the outfield fence into the field of play.
