PHOENIX — Banner Health, the state of Arizona's largest employer and health system, now has its name on one of the Arizona Diamondbacks’ team facilities as part of an new partnership between the two organizations.

As the Major League Baseball team's pitchers and catchers took the field for the first time in preparation for the 2020 season Wednesday, the Diamondbacks and Banner unveiled the newly named complex called the Banner Sports Medicine Performance Center. It is at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick in Scottsdale, where the Diamondbacks play their Cactus League spring training games.

“This collaboration with Banner Health will allow our sports medicine and performance staff to work closely with experts and have access to the most up-to-date, cutting-edge technology and advancements in the sports medicine and performance industry,” team CEO and President Derrick Hall said in a statement.
